The Edgewater Funds Launches Haystax Technology, Inc. to Provide Next Generation Intelligence Solutions for Government and Commercial Markets

William Van Vleet, President and Chief Executive Officer, announced today the launch of Haystax Technology, Inc., a next generation intelligence company. Haystax will focus on providing products, systems and service solutions in analytics, visualization and cyberspace to meet the exponential increase in data volume and the ever-changing information needs of government and industry.

Haystax Technology, Inc., a privately held company, in partnership with The Edgewater Funds plans to invest strategically in key companies and state-of-the-art technologies. By building Haystax Technology through strategic acquisitions, the company’s solutions will sift, refine and analyze large, disparate and unstructured volumes of data to reveal undiscovered connections and enable precise, real-time decisions.

William Van Vleet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Haystax, commented, “We believe the government and commercial industries need a company they can to turn to meet their specific needs in analytics, visualization and cyberspace. By combining the technological strengths and market penetration of many small and emerging firms, Haystax will be able to offer the “best-of-breed” solutions.”

Chief Financial Officer of Haystax, James Doyle, added, “Our past success in the public market affords the opportunity to raise capital in either the private or public markets. Bill and I worked well together with the investment community to add value for shareholders. We believe we have a similar opportunity to do the same with Haystax.”

Jeff Frient, Partner with The Edgewater Funds, commented, “We are excited about the opportunity to work with Bill and Jim to create the next mid-market intelligence company. These professionals have significant industry experience and a proven track record as evidenced by the very successful sale of Applied Signal Technology, Inc. to Raytheon. The combination of a quality management team and Edgewater’s investments make for a very promising opportunity.”
