Nir Zelik interviewed Rami Hadar (pictured), Allot Communications' CEO, to the Calcalist news site (here, Hebrew), following Allot's strong Q3 report (here).
- While Allot can continue to operate as an independent company, and we do not wish or seek an acquisition, we do get several proposals every year. I bring those to the board of directors; so far we said no to all. This may change in the future ..
- Some of the proposals we got were from TEMs and routing gear vendors (F5, for example)
- Our organic growth in the last 2-3 years has been 30-35%, and I wish we can continue at this level, but I like to expedite it with acquisitions
- We seek a local (Israeli) company, with a complementary technology, over $10M annual revenues, not necessarily profitable. We believe the integration will make us more efficient. We do not have the luxury of staying a niche company
