Anoto establishes new commercial agreement with Deutsche Telekom

Stockholm, October 8, 2018 – Anoto Group AB (Anoto) today announces that it has signed a 3-year license extension agreement with Deutsche Telekom IT GmbH (“Deutsche Telekom”). This agreement re-establishes a framework within which Anoto and Deutsche Telekom will work together to meet the needs of Deutsche Telekom’s organizational customers.  Deutsche Telekom is one of the largest customers in terms of annual pattern usage, amounting to more than 100 million unique pattern pages per year.

Deutsche Telekom has been successfully using Anoto’s technology platform (pens, pattern, and software) in its 800+ distribution outlets.  The total transaction value of the renewal is approximately USD 900,000 for pen license fees and patterns.  Deutsche Telekom uses its own proprietary software.  The payment is expected to be made in full upfront.

Along with Vodafone in the UK, Anoto has now signed another major telecommunication companies in Europe.  These exciting agreements and the commercial structure of the relationships are seen as confirmation that Anoto’s new strategy of recurring pattern and license revenue model are beginning to gain wide acceptances among existing Anoto’s customers.
