Q1-09 Results: OnMobile Paid Over $18 Million For Telisma; $20 Million Revenues, $3.6 Million Profit; Nepal Operator RBT

OnMobile Global paid as much as 12 Million Euros (around $18.7 Million and Rs. 78.9 Crores) for French speech recognition company Telisma S.A. That's an amount not too distant from the consolidated revenues that OnMobile has reported for the first quarter of this fiscal - Rs. 86.3 crores or $20.46 Million - and a fairly significant bet on the technology. Telisma has a speech recognition technology available in 10 Indian languages - Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, and English - and OnMobile plans to deploy it with operator clients over the next 2-3 years.

The company says that margins are lower this fiscal, primarily due to payouts to VoxMobili shareholders. Also, they've adopted a revenue share business model for VoxMobili's phone-backup service in Asia, instead of the previously adopted one time license, which brings in lower initial returns, but more long term revenues. Over 10 operators have signed up for the Phone Backup service.
