28 October 21

Cambridge (UK), 28 October 2021 (17:45 CEST): Hybrid Software Group PLC (Euronext: HYSG) (the “Company”) announces the acquirement of the entire issuance of share capital of ColorLogic GmbH (“ColorLogic”) on 27 October 2021. ColorLogic GmbH was founded in 2002 and has its registered office in Rheine, Germany.

ColorLogic GmbH has an extensive portfolio of color profiling and conversion software. They recently won the 2021 Pinnacle Product Award from the PRINTING United Alliance. Its products are sold worldwide to not only end-users, who have stringent requirements for color quality, but also to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of printing equipment.   

Statement from CEO of Hybrid Software Group

Hybrid Software Group CEO Mike Rottenborn comments, “Our Harlequin RIP is the market leader in speed and quality for digital printing, which many industry-leading OEMs use. However, its color management has historically built around the 4-color CMYK process. As the production of labels and packaging shifts to digital printing, there is a bigger need for more capable 7-color print devices to provide a color-accurate match of brand colors. ColorLogic has long been respected as an industry leader in extended gamut color management, and their tools provide the perfect combination of speed and quality for these demanding applications. ColorLogic will become the fifth operating company in Hybrid Software Group. They join Global Graphics Software, HYBRID Software, Meteor Inkjet, and Xitron. Its products and technology will enhance the offerings of all of these companies.”

Barbara Braun-Metz, ColorLogic’s Founder and CEO, adds, “I founded ColorLogic almost 20 years ago.Together with the help of my great team we are proud to say that we are the leading developers of high-end color management technologies. We have great products which print production around the world use on a daily basis. Additionally, we have numerous partners which use our technology to develop outstanding products on top of it.  Now we are ready for the next big step – to ensure the future development of our technology and our products.
