Telit Wireless Solutions to Acquire Navman Wireless OEM Solutions

According to Telit CEO Oozi Cats, the acquisition of Navman’s technology and its U.S.- based executive engineering and sales staff will make Telit a major contender in the GPS market while providing an enhanced product portfolio for its M2M customers.

“The Navman acquisition provides Telit access to new GPS customers and products beyond the traditional M2M industry,” Cats said. “Navman’s reputation for delivering state-of-the-art GPS technology and the global reach of Telit’s sales and marketing organization put us in a strong position of growth in the GPS sector.”

“In addition, the acquisition strengthens our position as the premier product and consultative partner in the M2M industry by leveraging the synergies of both companies to better serve our global customers,” Cats said.

George Arnott, VP, global OEM solutions, Navman Wireless OEM Solutions, who will be managing the business unit under Telit’s ownership, said: “We are excited about the prospect of working with the Telit team to continue bringing our quality GPS module solutions to the market. With our pioneering GPS engineering background, we are also excited about the possibility of creating new hybrid GPS and wireless M2M innovations for Telit customers.”

According to the “World GPS Market Forecast to 2013” from  RNCOS, shipments of GPS devices will grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 20 percent this year through 2013 to reach 900 million units sold generating more than $70 billion in annual revenue.  Part of the current technology revolution known as “The Internet of Things,” M2M is a fast-growing $50 billion business transforming society through innovative connectivity in industries as diverse as healthcare, energy, transportation, security and consumer electronics. M2M delivers significant power and cost savings while increasing efficiency and reliability through cellular or other wireless platforms.
