Babylon Ltd. (TASE:BBYL) today announced the acquisition of 100% of Woolik Ltd. for $8 million in cash and shares. Woolik develops online search solutions that personalize the user’s browser, adding value to search page users, and enhancing the user experience. Woolik’s solutions are synergetic with Babylon’s business and should help it retain its customer base and expand it, while helping improve the company’s performance.
Under the deal, among other things, Woolik’s employees will be eligible for rights to Babylon shares.
