CM.com completes acquisition of Building Blocks

CM.com, a global leader in cloud software for conversational commerce, has completed the acquisition of Consumer AI technology company Building Blocks.

The company combines Artificial Intelligence software and services, empowering its customers to build more relevant and personalised interactions across the customer journey, enhancing the customer experience and boosting business results.

The acquisition will be paid for by a combination of cash and equity consideration. This consideration excludes a capped earn-out for excess revenue growth above a specific threshold. The cash consideration amounts to € 6.9 million. The equity consideration will consist of 129,787 ordinary shares in the share capital of CM.com N.V. The shares will be purchased by CM.com N.V. in the open market in the following weeks.

Over the past three years, the Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of Building Blocks increased on average by 97% per year and currently adds up to approximately € 4.0 million. As a result, the acquisition will support CM.com’s strategy to increase its ARR and core gross margin.
