Element Fusion, the Creator of LightCMS, Joins Forces with NetSuite

We've got some very exciting news to share with you today. LightCMS and Element Fusion have been acquired by NetSuite. NetSuite is a publicly traded company (NYSE: N) and the industry's leading provider of cloud-based business management software suites. We're excited that LightCMS is joining NetSuite's broad suite of applications.

We know that the news of an acquisition can raise a lot of questions, so we want to assure you of a few important things. 

First off, it's important to note that you can continue using LightCMS as usual. The impact of this change in ownership should be transparent. The LightCMS platform continues to operate as normal for customers and resellers. In addition, we want you to know that the LightCMS team is still in place and will continue to service and support the LightCMS product. In fact, we'll still be operating out of our Oklahoma City offices. NetSuite wants to preserve what has made LightCMS a success as well as continuing to improve it for years to come.

Most of you know that Element Fusion, the creator of LightCMS, always maintained a unique approach to business. We bootstrapped our company from the beginning, growing it steadily on solid profits and operating with no debt and no outside investment. An exit plan has never been a part of our strategy as we were always in it for the long haul.

At the same time, we always kept our eyes open for opportunities to expand and grow — opportunities that would bring great new things to our product and our customers. NetSuite presented us with just such an opportunity and, as a result, we are very excited about what the future holds. We can't wait to continue on the journey with you.

Thank you all for your continued support of LightCMS. We look forward to serving you for years to come. If you have any further questions, you may reach us, as always, at support@lightcms.com.

Just wondering if this might prompt the introduction of international pricing into LightCMS, with NetSuite being a more international presence. I'd love to just let my customers manage their own accounts, but I don't want them paying in dollars and wondering why!
