QuantumWave Capital Advises Monoidics on the Sale of its Assets to Facebook

PARIS, France – July 18, 2013 – QuantumWave Capital, a boutique investment bank specializing in the mobile internet, acted as exclusive financial advisor to Monoidics, a leading pioneer in code verification software, on the sale of its assets to Facebook, the world’s largest social network.

Based in London’s dynamic Silicon Roundabout technology hub, founded by a prominent team of computer science researchers coming out of leading UK universities, Monoidics has effectively solved one of the software industry’s most impenetrable problems, that of static code-analysis and formal verification. The Monoidics Infer platform, a static code-analysis platform for critical applications, applies precise mathematical algorithms to analyse and provide formal verification of code, substantiating the absence of run-time memory and resource-related errors, typically the most difficult-to-discover, high risk and expensive-to-resolve defects in a program.

This Facebook acquisition represents a significant strategic investment in the quality of the social network’s mobile applications, platform, and also people, as key members of Monoidics’ talented software engineering group will be joining the company’s London-based team.
