Hummingbird is now OpenText
On October 2nd, 2006, Open Text acquired Hummingbird and became the largest independent vendor in Enterprise Content Management (ECM). The combined entity is better positioned to serve the ECM needs of global organizations with a much broader portfolio of products and solutions. ExKnow has partnered with OpenText and will continue supporting organizations with their Hummingbird / OpenText Livelink applications, and provides consulting for the new OpenText product family.

Open Text™ Corporation, a leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, and Hummingbird Ltd. announced that they have closed the transaction pursuant to which all of Hummingbird’s common shares were acquired by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Open Text.

Open Text, through its wholly owned subsidiary 6575064 Canada Inc. acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Hummingbird. The transaction was completed pursuant to a plan of arrangement under section 192 of the Canada Business Corporations Act and an arrangement agreement made as of August 4, 2006, which was amended on September 19, 2006, among 6575064 Canada Inc., Open Text and Hummingbird.
