Boom! Neustar Acquires Bombora Technologies (a Registry Services Provider to Over 100 TLDs) in $86.9 Million Deal

Neustar, the Sterling, Virginia based tech services giant that operates the .biz, .us and .co registries and provides backend services to many other TLDs, just became an even bigger player in that space with one bold stroke. Neustar announced today they have acquired Australia's  Bombora Technologies Pty Ltd  for  approximately USD $86.9 million. Bombora and its subsidiaries, which include ARI Registry Services, provide registry services for .au, .melbourne, .sydney and over 100 new TLDs. The deal expands the number of TLDs Neustar services to over 300 now.

Neustar President and CEO Lisa Hook said, “With this acquisition, Neustar continues to gather momentum as a global leader in launching and operating TLDs. Managing a brand's digital presence through the creation of new TLDs has become a key component of the CMO's tool kit, which aligns with the services we offer in real-time authoritative identity. By combining Bombora’s strong team and market presence in Australia with Neustar’s industry leading organization and technical resources, we are positioned to expand our footprint to the Asia-Pacific region.”

The Neustar announcement said the acquisition is expected to contribute approximately USD $8 million of revenue and approximately USD $1.1 million of operating income in 2015, which reflects the adjustment for deferred revenue on a fair value basis in accordance with business combination accounting principles. Over the last two years, Bombora has grown revenue at a 

compounded annual growth rate of 12% to approximately USD $20.6 million and in 2014 had operating margins between 25%-30%.
