Toronto-based Q4 Web Systems, who is fresh off a $5 million investment, announced today that it has acquired Oxford Intelligence Partners, a provider of innovative stock surveillance. The terms of the deal were not disclosed but will help accelerate “its mission of becoming the world’s leading SaaS provider of capital markets intelligence and advanced communication solutions for public companies and institutional investors.”
Q4 Web Systems provides leading companies with Investor Relations (IR) websites and apps on all screens — desktop, tablet and smartphones. It’s closest competitor in the space is NASDAQ and they recently managed to win over some of its major clients. Q4 Web Systems now has over 500 customers including Michael Kors, McDonald’s, Nike, FedEx, Hilton Worldwide, Visa and MasterCard.
Oxford specializes in capital markets intelligence and produces customized analytics and C-Level reporting to investor relations professionals. Oxford’s CEO Adam Frederick will join Q4 as SVP of Intelligence and the entire Oxford team will join Q4.
Darrell Heaps, CEO of Q4, said, “We have been working with Oxford since the beginning of 2015, with many of our team members having significant history in working together with Oxford’s leaders. From the outset of our relationship, I have been impressed with what they have accomplished. Combining the Q4 team with Oxford’s analysts, proprietary datasets and data scientists will help bring the Q4 platform and solutions to an entirely new level. This is a transformational deal for Q4 and Oxford and we couldn’t be more excited about the future.”
