LEUVEN, Belgium -- Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) today announced that during the first quarter of 2013 the Company generated revenue of EUR 2.2 million. As reported in previous trading updates, the revenue now reflects the expiration of the Huawei license agreement. The ecosystem for CloudGate continues to build up in the United States. Agreements have been signed with additional Application Enablement Platform partners who provide middleware and hosted service platforms. Resellers have taken inventory of the CloudGate and are running marketing campaigns. Customer projects are in the piloting and deployment stages. In Europe, the ecosystem is starting to build with the commercial launch of CloudGate in the second quarter. CloudGate enables the Company to address the Machine to Machine (M2M) market which is expected to grow at an average CAGR of 33% to a market size of $ 85 Billion by 2017 according to Machina Research and Markets and Markets. During the first quarter, EUR 9 million funding was raised via the issue of a convertible bond. The funding was subscribed by 5 partners: the Flemish investment company PMV, Athos Investments, Life Science Research Partners, Mondo and Jan Callewaert. As a cost-reduction measure, it was also decided to close the office in Paris (France) and to further reduce the facility in Cork (Ireland). The combination of the new funding with further cost reductions and the projected sales of products should allow Option to build out a profitable business focused on B2B and M2M solutions. Option NV

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
