Apple reportedly bought Italian startup focused on app management

Stamplay, startup italiana comprada pela Apple

Apparently, despite the somewhat “disappointing” financial results, Apple has its pockets wide open in early 2019. After buying Laserlike, another startup supposedly was snapped up by the Apple – this time, the Italian Stamplay.

According to information from the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, Apple paid about 5 million euros (approximately R $ 21 million) by the company. Under the terms of the contract, the founders of Stamplay are now employees of Apple, but it is not known whether other employees of startup they will also start to work for the company or if the acquisition was more focused on the technology and intellectual properties of the Italian.

Stamplay is (or… was) a small company focused on process automation for managing apps and digital platforms in the cloud – in other words, it worked with small and medium-sized companies to implement solutions to simplify and automate the operation of their apps and internal systems.

Apple did not confirm the acquisition with its traditional statement (which «buys smaller companies from time to time and does not discuss its plans and purposes in this regard»). A great indication that Stamplay was actually purchased, however, is that its website has had almost all of the information removed recently – as it usually does when Apple finishes a startup.

Let’s follow this story in search of new information. Anything, as always, we’ll let you know.
