Zix Acquires the Assets of Email Security Provider DeliverySlip

Acquisition Expands Company’s Product Suite and Customer Base,
Delivers Cost Savings, and Creates Additional Cross-Selling Opportunities

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zix
Corporation
(Zix) (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email
security, has acquired the assets of Cirius Messaging Inc. and wholly
owned subsidiary, DeliverySlip Inc. related to the DeliverySlip product.
DeliverySlip is a provider of email encryption, e-signatures and secure
file sharing solutions. Total cash consideration for the transaction is
$14 million, payable in various stages between closing and October 2020.
The asset acquisition immediately improves the margin profile of the
business by eliminating the third party royalty payable by AppRiver to
DeliverySlip. In addition, it will add large file transfer capabilities
to Zix’s email security suite, as well as additional customers, cost
savings, and cross-selling opportunities.

“With more than 90% of DeliverySlip’s revenue coming from AppRiver, we
recognized the importance of executing this acquisition to eliminate any
potential disruption to our partners and customers and to drive further
cost savings and cross-selling opportunities,” said David
Wagner
, Zix’s Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to the cost
savings of eliminating third-party royalties for the DeliverySlip
solutions, the acquisition will enable our partners and customers to
move forward with one comprehensive suite of email security solutions
that will be integrated over time. It further provides an opportunity to
generate higher attach rates with the cross-sell of large file transfer
and document signing solutions to Zix’s installed base. Not including
potential cross-selling opportunities, we expect the transaction to add
approximately $2 million of adjusted EBITDA in 2020.”

DeliverySlip serves 5 million+ users across 11,000+ organizations
worldwide. With a particular focus on compliance-oriented industries,
DeliverySlip has built a robust data protection platform encompassing
emails, large files, web forms, apps, and electronic signatures and
approvals.
