hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : DiscreetFX submits proposal to acquire Amiga Inc. in the next 12 months
   posted by DiscreetFX on 22-Oct-2006 6:26:59 (17103 reads)
Members of DiscreetFX sent a formel proposal to Amiga Inc. requesting formal validation of the companies value. We are hard at work finishing up our Super Size Me like movie about Trans Fat but the plan is to secure funding to purchase Amiga Inc. and all of it’s IP in the next year. That is our next project after completing the film. It has been on the To-Do list for some time.

This of course depends on if Amiga Inc. wants to sell themselves in the next year and if an agreed upon price can be negotiated. DiscreetFX believes there is tremendous value in the Amiga brand and Amiga OS 4.0. The CEO of DiscreetFX stated “Even though we primarly develop our visual effects software on NewTek video editing solutions for Windows and solutions on Mac OS X the Amiga has always held a special place in my heart since I developed my first product on it. I want to help bring the Amiga back to it’s former glory in new IT markets”. If an agreement can be reached between Amiga Inc. and DiscreetFX the return of Amiga will be amazing.

Best regards

DiscreetFX Team

Interesting announcement, but wouldn't it have been better not to announce this until you actually managed to buy Amiga?

Whatever you do, don't pay over the odds, you've got to look seriously at what is left you can actually make money out of in 2006.

@DiscreetFX

What's happening with the Amizilla fund, are you still collecting? Has any interest accululated been added to the pot?

It doesn't matter who values Amiga Inc at whatever....

They are a private company.. No Shares anywhere.

If they don't want to sell

guess What .. ?


Very true, i suspect they are not looking for a buyer right now anyway, particuarly as they recently made a purchase themselves - not characteristic of company looking to sell, surely?

If only they were publicly traded .

Amiga in the hands of someone worthy. Commodore U.K. and later Quikpac failed to get Amiga, could we be third time lucky.

In our proposal we have offered Bill M. a free round trip plane ticket to DiscreetFX to discuss this further, hopefully he will take us up on it and fly out.

@dan.hutch

The AmiZilla fund has been transferred to a 6 month CD and is earning a respectable interest rate.

I personally think it looks very unprofessional to announce such a thing without even getting a response yet from this said company. If they are willing to sell, then the price will probably be high just because of the brand.

It honestly does not look like they are planning to sell at this moment.

What in the... Bill P is trying to buy Amiga?

Interesting news. But, I'll believe it only when the deal is done.
