Mamma Has Plans to Acquire Copernic

Mamma.com, the Montreal-based metasearch engine has signed a letter-of-intent to acquire Copernic.

Copernic, also a Canadian company, offers several desktop and enterprise search apps including Copernic Desktop Search. Here’s our review.

Other products Copernic offers include a metasearch client app (Copernic Agent), a free toolbar that allows you to add any search engine to it with a single click (Copernic Meta Toolbar), and summarization software.

About a month ago Copernic created a separate company, Coveo Solutions, to market its enterprise search software.

According to the announcement, the plan is to close this transaction in the first quarter of 2005.

Thanks to S.C. for the news tip.
