Published on .

Round Rock, Texas—Dell Inc. said it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire MessageOne, a software-as-a-service (SaaS), enterprise e-mail management, archiving and storage company, for about $155 million in cash. The deal has been approved by the boards of each company.

“MessageOne’s offerings add key capabilities to our growing SaaS-enabled services portfolio for the most critical application to businesses of any size: e-mail,” said Steve Schuckenbrock, president of Dell Global Services and CIO, in a statement.

“MessageOne’s services not only meet the needs of large companies with an impressive roster of existing Fortune 500 customers and marquee partners as proof points but can also scale down cost effectively to meet the needs of small and medium business customers.”

MessageOne was co-founded by Adam Dell, brother of Dell Inc. founder Michael Dell, and is owned in part by two investment funds, Impact Venture Partners and Impact Entrepreneurs Fund, managed by Adam Dell.
