For Immediate Release
Mesa, AZ (May 5, 2011) – Iveda Solutions (OTCBB:IVDA) announced today that the Taiwan Foreign Investment Committee Agency approved the company’s acquisition of Sole-Vision Technologies, doing business as MEGAsys Taiwan.
“This is a very important milestone for Iveda Solutions, officially marking our entry into the Asian market,” says David Ly, President and CEO of Iveda Solutions.
MEGAsys is a Taiwanese company specializing in deploying video surveillance systems for airports, commercial buildings, government customers, data centers, shopping centers, hotels, banks, and Safe City initiatives in Taiwan and other neighboring countries. Iveda Solutions provides enterprise-class cloud-based video surveillance to commercial and government entities in the US and Mexico. The union of the two companies is a win-win strategy. MEGAsys now has Iveda Solutions’ expertise in cloud-based video surveillance and access to the US markets for its products, while Iveda Solutions gains access not only to Asian markets, but Asian manufacturers, engineering expertise, and other suppliers.
“Over the last few months, we have been working with Iveda Solutions’ management team on the acquisition and have initiated some joint projects with them. The experience has been great and we are confident that our decision to merge with Iveda Solutions will prove to be very rewarding for both companies,” says I.H. Shiau, President of MEGAsys.
MEGAsys becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Iveda Solutions and will retain its existing management team and employees. The company will continue to operate independently on the day-to-day basis, but will adhere to Iveda Solutions’ policies and overall company goals.
“In the next few months, we will concentrate on integrating MEGAsys’ accounting system, learning their operations, while identifying new business opportunities and leveraging each other’s strengths, says Ly.
