French-owned global market intelligence solution provider, Ubiquick Group, has acquired Australian telecommunications industry research firm Paul Budde Communication (PBC).

The two companies will be integrated, with PBC, a global research firm established more than 40 years ago, continuing to trade under its own brand – BuddeComm.

As part of the integration, PBC founder Paul Budde will continue in his current role until December to help ensure a smooth transition.

"It is very exciting to see the new generation taking the reins of the company I started 40 years ago. It is definitely a new step forward for the company with many opportunities," said Budde.

"Our strategy has always been to provide technology enhanced market intelligence solutions to analysts. With this acquisition, we have the opportunity to provide the PBC research team with cutting edge content and data analytics, allowing them to do more, faster and bring more value to their loyal clients" says Ben Carpano, chief executive at Ubiquick Group.
