Post Merger DigitalGlobe announces ‘Bridge’ Pricing

by Santosh Singh

On the first day of February we did a post on merger of DigitalGlobe and GeoEye. You can see it here. Market capitalization of the merged entity is $2.1 billion. The new entity, still named DigitalGlobe, is in the course of merging processes, products and pricing.

In order to systematically tackle the complexity of merger of two of the biggest image acquisition companies, DigitalGlobe has divided the whole process in to milestones. Bridge and Transform are two major phase that will help DigitalGlobe achieve the target of complete merger by September 2013.

Currently under the ‘Product On-Ramp’ phase the legacy products of both GeoEye and DigitalGlobe are being ordered and processed by legacy systems and teams using the old pricing structure.
