  • Don't Get Suckered Into Perion [View article]
    You have one glaring inaccuracy that undermines your whole analysis:
    Mendelbaum was not the CEO of Perion (then IncrediMail) when they started with the search business.
    He joined only later and put the company on the path of diversification and ultimately a complete pivot to mobile.
    He seems to be the best man for the job of taking Perion to renewed success.

  • Google ends deal with Babylon amid changing policies; Perion, AVG lower [View news story]
    As a former employee at IncrediMail (later Perion) I can attest that we always made a point of not doing things behind the user's back and making it very easy to remove our application.
    Hopefully the market will understand the difference between Perion and the likes of Babylon

  • Perion's Risks Extend Beyond Bloomberg Report [View article]
    So many incorrect "facts" makes you think...
    Just a couple of examples:
    "Multiple reviewers also noted difficulty in canceling during the company's free trial period and thus facing a $39.95 annual fee"
    - That is simply untrue: there is no "trial period". IncrediMail is free and ad-supported program. It stays free and ad-supported unless you pay a one time fee and get the premium license.
    "the very notion of toolbars ... - have been essentially wiped off the Internet for most users"
    - Ever heard of Conduit? last I heard it was doing well.

    It is very easy to put a negative spin on things "there may be some concern on Google's end about Perion's software"
    ooohhh scary: Google is concerned! really...?

    Makes you wonder what the agenda is behind this article...
    Reminds me of the old saying:
    "If you want to understand something, follow the money"
