Also reports that the company got a million dollars in bridge funding from one of their customers, Deutsche Telekom of Germany.
VocalTec CEO Elon Ganor said, “We are involved in discussions regarding several potential M&A transactions and are simultaneously in the preliminary due diligence stage of a potential business combination with another company. In addition, we are also considering a bidding process.”
