TORONTO, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iotum, operator of the popular and versatile teleconferencing service Calliflower.com for small business, today announced it is expanding with the acquisition of California-based Global Conference Partners, provider of FreeConference.com and associated teleconferencing services.

Jason Martin, president and CEO, said iotum is acquiring all of the assets of Global Conference Partners, a portfolio company of American Capital, Ltd. (NASDAQ: ACAS).  In addition to FreeConference.com, the transaction includes InstantConference.com, GlobalConference.com and several other international brands. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The conferencing properties acquired from GCP will continue to be offered from Glendale, Calif.; no employees will lose their jobs as a result of the acquisition, said Martin.  Calliflower also will continue as a conferencing service, he said.

"It's a natural fit," said Martin. "The Global Conference properties nicely complement Calliflower where we'll quickly realize economies of scale even though all conferencing services will continue under separate brands."
