“We believe the number of use cases for API/CPaaS is almost limitless, helping to generate the market growth. Among the categories we cover of API/CPaaS is the fastest grower we believe. 8×8 can now offer API/CPaaS via its own technology. API/CPaaS can also be complementary to CCaaS customers. API/CPaaS enables 8×8 to more quickly capture customers than a UCaaS or CCaaS sale cycle might; although the buyers within companies to date have often been different people. 8×8 highlights growth acceleration, expansion internationally and deepening of tech expertise as rationales for the acquisition. We’d expect 8×8’s scale, R&D and global reach to help Wavecell as well. Transaction. 8×8 is paying $125 million ($69 mil cash, $59 mil stock) for Wavecell, or under 4x CY19 revs.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
