Tom Cotney, CEO of mBlox, said, "The $25 million venture loan led by Horizon strengthens our financial position as we continue to execute our growth strategy. We appreciate the support we have received from Horizon and their experienced team of professionals, who worked diligently to close this strategic transaction. The funding from Horizon positions us to remain in the leadership position we have developed on a worldwide basis. Increasingly, that requires broader support of the needs of large enterprises that are mature users of mobile technology as well as new entrants that are smaller and move quickly. Horizon helped us fill the war chest we need to capture more growth for our investors and our reseller partners serving key segments of a growing market."
