    AIRNOW AIMING TO BE THE GO-TO COMPANY FOR APP DEVELOPERS AND PUBLISHERS

    It has been an interesting and busy 12 months for the company formerly known as AppScatter.

    It has changed its name to Airnow following its acquisition of Airpush, which was concluded in mid-December - a deal that moves the group a step closer to being a one-stop-shop for app developers and publishers.

    This strategy will be further aided by a second purchase, the completion of which late next month should pave the way for a re-listing of the enlarged business.

    CEO Q&A WITH PHILIP MARCELLA AT APPSCATTER GROUP PLC

    appScatter Group PLC (LON:APPS) Chief Executive Officer Philip Marcella caught up with DirectorsTalk for an exclusive interview to discuss the acquisition of Abilott and how this fits in with their business.

    Q1: First off, I wanted to congratulate you on your agreement to acquire Abilott, can you tell us a bit more about how this relationship came about?

    A1: Abilott has been working with appScatter for quite a few years, in fact we first began working with them before we went public on the AIM market.

    The reason we got involved with them is that the amount of data we collect is quite substantial and we also collect private data on behalf of our customers and clients, many of which are financial institutions and also some banks. We were fully aware that there were going to be processes put in place which would mean that to handle private data on behalf of financial institutions that our clients would require certification and various compliance issues.

    So, we brought them in to help on our infrastructure and our compliance pre the IPO.
