AGC Partners is pleased to announce that its client, Simplygon, the premier developer of automatic 3D-optimization solutions, has been acquired by Microsoft. The acquisition of Simplygon will accelerate Microsoft's recently announced "3D For Everyone" vision and strategy. Simplygon's technology and talent will strengthen Microsoft's position in 3D creation, making it easier to capture, create and share in 3D. With a team led by Elena Marcus and Ben Howe, AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to Simplygon.
I was skeptical about hiring a banker. I am now glad that we did as the AGC team did an outstanding job of bringing this transaction together. We are very excited to be joining the Microsoft family.
