Today it was confirmed that the project management website Trello was acquired by the software company Atlassian for a total of $425 million.
In case you don’t know who they are, Atlassian is an enterprise software company who develop products for software developers, project managers and content management, so they are quite the good fit for Trello.
They also run an issue tracking application called Jira and a team collaboration and wiki product called Confluence, which could mean that they have some integrations planned with those services.
They were founded in Sydney, Australia back in 2012 and are now registered in the UK as Atlassian Corporation PLC, however, their head office is still in Sydney.
With the acquisition, they aim to receive 100 million monthly active users, which they aim to do by expanding their services around the world.
Currently, they have over 40,000 customers in over 134 countries.
