Telenav Acquires skobbler GmbH, a Leader in OpenStreetMap-based GPS Navigation

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telenav®, Inc. (Nasdaq:TNAV), the leader in personalized navigation, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 ended December 31, 2013.

"We are pleased to have exceeded our revenue guidance this quarter, driven by continued momentum in our automotive and mobile advertising businesses," said HP Jin, chairman and CEO of Telenav. "While as expected, we incurred a net loss in the quarter, our success with both our automotive and mobile advertising businesses confirms our belief that continuing to invest in these opportunities will provide substantial returns in the longer term."

Jin noted that "Adding to our highly successful partnership with Ford, today we announced through our SEC filings that another one of the top five largest global automobile manufacturers has selected Telenav to be its worldwide navigation partner for vehicles that are expected to come to market in the 2017 model year. This agreement further validates that Telenav's vision and products align with the auto industry's progression toward the always-connected car. We are pleased that our technology leadership in this space has led to our expanding presence in the automotive industry, which will drive revenue growth in calendar 2016 and beyond."

"Today, we also announced the acquisition of skobbler GmbH, with the highest rated OpenStreetMap (OSM)-based GPS navigation apps in the world," continued Jin. "Through this acquisition, we add significant industry-leading software expertise in location-based services, navigation and mapping to our team. We expect to leverage this expertise across our Scout products and services, especially internationally, where skobbler today is available in 49 regions with worldwide map coverage."

Recent Business Highlights

  • Today, Telenav announced through SEC filings that one of the top five largest global automobile manufacturers has selected Telenav as its worldwide connected navigation partner. The agreement covers an initial three-year production cycle, starting with select model year 2017 vehicles that are expected to be available beginning in calendar year 2016. Telenav's connected services are expected to support navigation in more than 100 countries. The automaker will use a unique version of Scout for Cars, Telenav's embedded and connected navigation reference product that includes a customized user interface depending on the region and target audience. It will provide robust points of interest and real-time data such as, traffic, local weather and gas prices. It will also provide continued route guidance with or without connectivity.
  • Today, Telenav announced that it acquired skobbler, with the highest rated OpenStreetMap (OSM)-based GPS navigation apps in the world. The acquisition closed on January 29, 2014 for consideration of $23.8 million, consisting of approximately $19.2 million in cash, plus $4.6 million of common stock. With this acquisition, Telenav brings the most successful OSM navigation experts in the world together as one team – including the founder of OSM, Steve Coast, who joined Telenav last year. Telenav believes this team will become a major contributor to the creation of the most comprehensive, open-sourced maps of the world.
  • In January of 2014, Telenav announced the appointment of two new Scout product leads - Rohan Chandran who has joined as the Head of Consumer Products and Global Services, and Hossam Bahlool, who is now Head of Automotive Products. Chandran has held senior product roles at Technorati and YP, and Bahlool comes to Telenav from Jingu Apps, which he co-founded. Prior to that, he was director of product management at BlackBerry for products including BB Messenger.
  • In December 2013, Thinknear by Telenav partnered with Placed, Inc., the location insights leader, to provide retailers with valuable insights into the effectiveness of mobile ads in driving offline store visits. The partnership focuses on measurement of consumers who are exposed to location-based mobile ads on the Thinknear network, and analysis of Placed's location panel data, to provide a solid indication of ROI to marketing partners.

As previously announced, due to the sale of the Enterprise business that closed effective April 1, 2013, the results of operations of that business are presented as discontinued operations in Telenav's income statement for all periods as of fiscal 2013. All financial metrics reported exclude discontinued operations relating to the Enterprise business.
