Nuix buys Canadian tech firm in $US4m deal, amid ASIC woes


ASIC is investigating whether Mr Rubinsztein became aware of a takeover offer from North American software group Reveal before the September 6 date the company told the market.

Mr Rubinsztein purchased 800,000 shares in three parcels starting September 6, the same week its chairman, Jeff Bleich, discussed a takeover proposal from Reveal’s chief executive Wendell Jisa.

Nuix has denied Mr Rubinsztein knew about the discussions, though ASIC is examining whether the meeting between Mr Bleich and Mr Jisa took place several days before when the company said.

In a statement to the ASX, Nuix said it hopes the Rampiva deal will enable it to cross-sell its investigative technology to the Canadian company’s customers, as well as monetise Rampiva’s legal technology data flows.

Both Reveal and Nuix software can be integrated into Rampiva’s platform.
