- Mergers & Acquisitions
We still may be in the early days of 2022, but Vista Cinema doesn’t want to lose any momentum this year. One week after landing Wallis Cinemas in Australia as the first exhibitor to deploy Vista Cloud, the company’s new hosted cinema management software platform, Vista announced they have acquired the entertainment technology provider Retriever Solutions.
Based in the United States, Retriever offers a broad suite of IT products to cinema owners integrated theatre management, point-of-sale, kiosks and web sites. If that sounds a lot like the kinds of products and services Vista Cinema currently offers, you’d be right, though the company says Retriever’s software will continue to be supported, including its web services, signage, back office, multi-site management, film rental and point-of-sale solutions.
The deal has Vista Cinema acquiring all of Retriever’s software, intellectual property and over 100 customers, not to mention its current employees. Retrieve will benefit from gaining access to more resources to support clients and ongoing product development.
We’ve spoken with Vista about the acquisition and will be publishing a piece with more details in the coming days.
