Mnet to sell subsidiary to RealNetworks

Mobile solutions company Mnet (ASX:MNZ) will sell its Ring Back Tones Australia division to RealNetworks in a transaction worth up to $3.6m

Mobile solutions developer, Mnet Group (ASX:MNZ), has arranged to sell its subsidiary, Ring Back Tones Australia, for up to $3.6 million.

Mnet said it had agreed to sell the unit, which develops personalised caller tone services, to RealNetworks.

The purchase price will be at least $1.6 million in cash, with extra cash payments of up to $2 million depending on the achievement of certain milestones.

The Ring Back Tones business currently accounts for around 14% of Mnet's total annual revenues. The company expects the sale to have a positive effect on group earnings for FY11.

The decision to divest was made under Mnet's strategy of concentrating on the high-growth segments of the business, the company said.

Mnet also said it would “continue to support RealNetworks in the provision of the services to Real's clients.” The two companies have had an eight-year business relationship.

MNZ shares stayed flat on Friday at $0.009.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
