Yuval Cohen, Telrad's chairman and managing partner at the Fortissimo Fund, said that "Telrad is a growing company, with good profitability over the years and with a large backlog of orders for the coming years. "The connection with Liquid, which is a significant international group, will ensure the company's expansion in Israel as a significant technological center for the entire group, and its penetration into new markets and customers in the coming years."
Moti Elmaleh, CEO of Telrad, said: "The Liquid Telecom Group expresses confidence in Telrad and the Israeli high-tech industry. The combination with the Liquid Group will enable Telrad's technological innovation, products and services in the three operating segments to the existing international activity in the acquiring group, serving millions of private customers and hundreds of thousands of business customers across the continent, and will significantly accelerate and develop Telrad's business in international markets.
