its thirteenth acquisition in the Communications and Media vertical with the acquisition of Lifecycle Software LTD (“Lifecycle”), a provider of mission critical billing, customer management, and business intelligence software solutions to mobile network operators, mobile virtual network operators, and mobile virtual network enablers and aggregators.

Founded in 1995 by Kim Craven, Lifecycle was formed to address a need by new UK market fixed communications providers and ISP resellers. In 2008 Lifecycle evolved its offerings to focus on the emerging needs of virtual mobile operators, enabling them with full subscriber management and billing turn-key solutions.

“We had been talking with Volaris regularly for quite some time and became convinced they would be the best home for Lifecycle for a number of reasons, mainly: the access to their global communications customer and partner ecosystem; being able to operate autonomously; and, the organization’s strong knowhow, best practices and financial resource to enable us to grow sustainably and entertain future M&A of our own,” said Kim Craven, Managing Director and Founder of Lifecycle. “We also liked their practice of ‘buy and hold forever’ as well as their dedication to allow us to maintain our corporate identity and accelerate the brand we have worked so hard to build over 2 decades in the market.”
