DUBLIN -- Anam Mobile Ltd, a provider of messaging infrastructure, today announced the completion of a €14m B round investment to further develop and accelerate the roll-out of its innovative Smart Services Interceptor Framework™ for mobile operators world wide.

The lead investor of this funding round was FF&P Private Equity Ltd, a subsidiary of Fleming Family and Partners, the London-based multi-family office managing the assets of the Fleming family and other clients. Motorola Ventures, the venture arm of Motorola Inc, and Mayfair Venture Capital also participated in the round.

Anam is an innovative mobile messaging technology company founded in 1999 and based in Dublin. It has developed and patented a next generation core-network messaging architecture, supported by its unique Smart Services Interceptor Framework, which provides mobile operators worldwide with the ability to launch new P2P messaging services rapidly. Until now it has not been possible to launch such services with existing deployed messaging architectures. Anam therefore offers the potential to open up significant new revenue streams for Mobile Operators.

Anam CEO, Gerry Mc Kenna said, “Our funding to date has been focussed on building the core Messaging Architecture to support Smart Services. This technology has been deployed by twelve Operators in 2005. We are seeing a strong demand for new person-to-person value add messaging services globally and our new funding will be focussed on broadening the portfolio of Smart Services that Mobile Operators can launch..”

David Donnelly, CEO of FF&P Private Equity, said: “We are delighted to conclude this investment in Anam, which we believe has developed an interesting suite of new revenue generating services for mobile operators. We place a particular emphasis on backing quality management and are particularly pleased to be partnering a team of this pedigree in text messaging with Motorola, Mayfair Venture Capital and Enterprise Ireland”.
