"I'm really excited about the future and partnering with talented local startups to reach our global potential, especially in the United States, China and Russia."

Fully committed financing for the transaction has been provided from private investment firms in London, Washington DC and Rome. Daniel Battaglia will remain Founder and CEO, and continue to own a stake in the company. Other terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
