babylon ltd (BBYL) Key Developments

Babylon Ltd. Reports Earnings Results for the Year 2013

Babylon Ltd. reported earnings results for the year 2013. The company reported lower revenue, but higher profits for 2013, because of the termination of its contract with Google Inc. Revenue fell 14% to ILS 591.4 million in 2013 from ILS 685 million in 2012, but net profit rose to ILS 148.4 million from ILS 103.1 million. The company boosted its net profit by slashing advertising, sales and marketing expenses from ILS 513.8 million in 2012 to ILS 351.4 million in 2013.

Babylon In Talks To Acquire MyThings

Noam Lanir, the controlling shareholder of Babylon Ltd. (TASE:BBYL), has held preliminary talks on acquiring MyThings, Ltd. Lanir, whose company has some ILS 200 million in cash, has held discussions with Benny Arbel, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of myThings, just days after TheMarker reported that Perion Network Ltd (NasdaqGS:PERI) was interested in buying the startup at a $120 million valuation. The deal would involve a mix of cash and Perion shares. Lanir denied he was trying to go behind Perion’s back. “I don’t have any plans to hijack the Perion deal. To the best of my knowledge, they haven’t completed an agreement and there’s only a 5% chance that Babylon will enter into an agreement at all,” he said. “I’m a good friend of Arbel’s. We served together in the army and he works in the building next to mine. But I must repeat, we’re talking about preliminaries. We haven’t begun official negotiations. We’ve simply exchanged ideas as friends often do.” Babylon, whose stock rose 1.1% to ILS 8.10 shekels on January 28, 2014.

Babylon Ltd. Sets to Launch its Search Engine in Eastern Europe and South America in the First Quarter of 2014

Babylon Ltd. is set to reinvent itself. The company will launch its own search engine in the first quarter of 2014. The new development follows cancellation of Babylon's agreement with Google Inc. and the planned merger with ironSource. Babylon's plan is believed to be to enter markets in which its main partners are either not present at all or have a small presence, so as not to compete with them. These markets are believed to be Eastern Europe and South America in the first stage. Babylon's aim is to utilize its ability develop end user characteristics to adapt ads and maximize profits. It is too early to tell how far the solution will go in replacing the lost profits from the cancellation of the Google deal that contributed 40% to 50% of the company's revenue.
