Proofpoint acquires Sendmail for $23M

Proofpoint (PFPT -0.4%) acquires enterprise messaging/security provider Sendmail for $23M in cash. Proofpoint believes it can generate subscription revenue from the proprietary Sentrion package while continuing to support open source distribution of other Sendmail platforms.

The company expects the acquisition to have an immaterial impact on revenue in Q4 and widen net loss by $2M, or $0.06/share. For 2014, the company expects Sendmail to contribute $5M in revenue (half from legacy maintenance contracts and half from new sales of Proofpoint solutions to these customers) and a $3M increase in net loss, or $0.08/share, partially mitigated by accretion.
