Director Mandriva denied rumors about the sale of the company

    Arno Laprevot, the new CEO of Mandriva, has denied rumors about selling a Linux company.

    As noted in his note, Mandriva has always been a participant in a variety of economic processes related to both investment and purchase. During its existence, the company absorbed Edge-IT, Conectiva and Linbox. Negotiations with investors are really being held at the moment, but there is nothing new or strange in this, since such discussions take place at all stages of the company's development. “We want to emphasize that Mandriva was not sold to anyone,” said Arno Laprevot.

    According to him, despite the negative impact of the economic crisis on the company, Mandriva did not stop developing new products and improving existing ones. Also, the company had a positive effect on the successful delivery of PCs with Mandriva Linux to South America and Africa and increased sales of Pulse 2 and MES (Mandriva Enterprise Server) 5 in Europe.

    “In this regard, it is not surprising that Mandriva has again attracted the attention of the industry,” Arno concluded his message.
