Macrovision (NSDQ: MVSN), fresh off its $1 sale of TV Guide magazine, has now sold off its information content access and subscription software division eMeta to Atypon Systems, the e-publishing software firm based in Santa Clara, CA. Terms were not disclosed. MVSN bought eMeta in 2006, for about $35 million. This sale is likely nowhere near that amount, considering how MVSN is interested in disposing off non core assets on the cheap. eMeta has been part of MVSN’s discontinued line for better part of this year. Through this acquisition, Atypon has expanded its technical team and added a publishing services consulting team to the company’s existing proposition. More info in release.
Small aside: eMeta was our first ever advertiser, back in 2002 when I started (this homepage snapshot from Archive.org).
