Warp 9 Sees Validation of Growth Strategy in Recent eCommerce Industry Acquisitions

Amazon's Recent Purchase of 2lemetry Affirms Warp 9's Plan of Growth Through Strategic Acquisitions of Complementary Companies

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - March 31, 2015) - Warp 9, Inc. (OTCQB: WNYN), the premier provider of mobile and eCommerce solutions for midsize online sellers, today commented on Amazon's recent acquisition of Internet of Things technology company 2lemetry, which validates its own growth through strategic acquisition strategy.

Earlier this month Amazon completed the purchase of 2lemetry, a four-year-old Denver company providing technology that helps power web-connected refrigerators, cars, consumer goods, etc. through its ThingFabric platform. The company has significantly decreased the complexity and ramp-up time for implementing IoT solutions -- making it possible within days or hours compared to months or years.

In late 2014, Warp 9 announced its own acquisition strategy to accelerate and build upon the strong organic growth it has already achieved. That acquisition strategy, which parallels Amazon's recent efforts, was highlighted by Warp 9's plan to purchase companies that are experts in the various digital commerce services that are needed to increase sales and decrease costs for online merchants. The initial focus would be on experts in the Magento eCommerce platform.

"Seeing Amazon grow its business through strategic acquisition, while knowing that we are trying to mirror that same growth model at Warp 9, gives us great confidence as a company that we are on the right track for continued success," said Andrew Van Noy, CEO of Warp 9. "Amazon saw a need within their business for IoT technology, and rather than attempt to create services from scratch, it identified an industry leader that it could acquire and bring tremendous value to the Amazon brand. We hope to continue to grow Warp 9 in a similar way."

Van Noy concluded, "At the end of the day, the goal is to continue to provide our customers with the most robust eCommerce and cyber security solutions possible, and we believe we can do that by bringing other small to medium sized providers into the fold and consolidate them into the Warp 9 digital enterprise. Doing so will only enhance our already stout service offerings, while improving our own company's bottom line, so we are very excited about what the future will bring."
