"This transaction is an element of our continuing program to tighten our corporate focus," said Steven W. Berglund, president and CEO of Trimble. "While public safety remains an attractive market, the capital required to achieve scale and growth in the market could be better employed by Trimble in other markets."
"The Omega Group's business is complementary to TriTech's solutions and supports the mission of our customers in officer and citizen safety," said Tony Eales, president and CEO, TriTech Software Systems. "It is a compelling addition to our product offering and key component of our public safety strategy."
The Omega Group has been reported as part of Trimble's Mobile Solutions segment. The divestiture will not have a material impact on either overall or segment financial results.
