Acquisition of UK based Volution to Accelerate Growth
Sydney, Dec 2, 2020 AEST (ABN Newswire) – Digital health and fitness company OliveX Holdings Limited (NSX:OLX) is pleased to advise that it has entered into a binding letter agreement to acquire the assets of UK company Anorton Holdings Ltd (in Administration), trading as Volution (Volution), for GBP191,000 (~A$345,000).
The acquisition is subject to the signing of a business sale agreement which is expected to occur during the next week.
Volution is a UK-based software business that develops end-to-end CRMs specifically for the fitness industry. Their solution includes full analytics, a lead generation platform, and custom software integrations.
Subject to obtaining third party consents, OliveX will acquire Volution’s existing contracts with Anytime Fitness Philippines and Fitness World, bringing direct access to 256 gyms and the potential to access a wider network of approximately 5,000 gyms around the world.
Negotiations currently underway between Volution and other global fitness clubs – many of which are at an advanced stage – will potentially enable the OliveX brand and its innovative fitness offerings to reach thousands more gyms and fitness clubs globally.
Volution’s assets also include a suite of fitness-focussed technology solutions, such as the “Virtual Hub” products that allows fitness trainers to create, upload and schedule classes, that can be used in the KARA Smart Fitness platform development.
It is intended that the approximately 10 staff members currently working with Volution will transition to OliveX, adding to the Company’s sales, product and software development capabilities.
“At OliveX, we have been exploring opportunities to partner with Volution for some time, so we were quick to act when we had the opportunity to acquire the business,” Keith Rumjahn, CEO of OliveX said. “The Volution technology will give us yet another way to leverage data to create better ways to make fitness fun and rewarding, so we are very excited about working with the Volution team and truly taking OliveX to the world.”
