Clickz is reporting that the deal that has Mamma.com acquiring desktop/enterprise search provider, Copernic.com, is back on. Mamma.com's plans to acquire Copernic were first announced in November 2003. Then, in February of this year, the deal was called off when Copernic pulled out of the deal due to an SEC probe of Mamma.com.
From Today's Clickz article:
"Based on further due diligence, we are now confident that Mamma.com is a strong and very well managed company. We are positive about closing this transaction which will create a new organization capable of competing with the best of breed in the search engine sector of the Internet," Martin Bouchard, executive chairman of Copernic Technologies, said in a statement.
