“For the past few years, Farelogix and Sabre have worked together with shared customers to implement our complementary technologies to solve some of the industry’s toughest challenges. Today’s announcement is a natural evolution of the successful, ongoing collaboration between our two companies,” said Jim Davidson, CEO of Farelogix. “Sabre shares our vision for innovation and has the leading technology, resources, and global presence to help us scale our solutions and grow our customer base.”

At closing, Sabre will purchase Farelogix for approximately $360 million, funded by cash on hand and revolver borrowing. Farelogix expects full year 2018 revenue of approximately $40 million. The acquisition is expected to be neutral to Sabre’s 2019 Adjusted EPS.

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close in late 2018 or early 2019. Until closing, Sabre and Farelogix will continue to operate as separate businesses with no immediate changes to daily operations.

“Farelogix’s investments in offer management and NDC order delivery will help us accelerate our plans to deliver future-ready retailing, distribution and fulfillment solutions that unlock increased value for the industry,” said Sean Menke, president & CEO of Sabre. “By integrating Farelogix’s capabilities into Sabre’s leading airline technology platform, we’ll be able to offer the innovative and comprehensive solutions that airlines require, backed by best-in-class technology and the deep expertise that our teams bring to market.”
