On Tuesday, data mining company and dot-com-bust survivor MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR ) announced that it has agreed to sell its Angel.com subsidiary to Genesys Telecommunication Laboratories for $110 million.
Angel.com is described as "a leading provider of cloud-based customer experience management (CEM) solutions for interactive voice response and contact centers." Privately held Genesys, meanwhile, helps customer call centers field more than 100 million "customer interactions" daily.
Need we even say it? Selling Angel to Genesys sounds like a match made in heaven. Investors certainly think so. MicroStrategy shares were up as much as 5% on the news, finishing the day at $103.18.
