While the new company does not have a name yet, the two firms signed a non-binding letter of intent on June 3, indicating they’re going to keep their current combined staff of about 150 as well as hire new employees in Vancouver. They aim to use this merger to reach new market opportunities as well as build on each other’s investments in R&D.
