TEMPO Commencing a Formal Process for a Significant Investment


The Board of Directors of Nýherji hf. has hired AGC Partners, a global investment bank headquartered in Boston, MA, to initiate a formal process for a significant investment in TEMPO ehf, a wholly-owned Nýherji subsidiary.

Tempo’s solutions enable organizations to plan, optimize, and manage JIRA resources, budget and track project costs, and track and report time for back-office efficiency. The Company’s solutions solve key “white-collar” enterprise pain points around JIRA developer productivity, resource optimization, and time tracking as it unobtrusively collects data on calendars and tool usage in the background for the pre-population of time sheets. Tempo’s time management and budgeting tools have become essential products in the JIRA ecosystem and are well received by CIOs and CFOs looking to gain better clarity into time and resource usage and cost within their organization. Further, Tempo is consistently one of the highest rated and most downloaded add-on application within the Atlassian Marketplace.

Nýherji CEO, Finnur Oddsson, "Tempo's continued growth and success has been fueled by the team‘s singular focus on building a world-class product and organization. Following the development of Tempo Cloud for JIRA and the migration of over 7,000 customers over to Tempo's new cloud services on top of AWS (Amazon Web Services), a number of exciting growth opportunities have opened up, including integration with other cloud services in addition to JIRA by Atlassian. We think now is the right time to enhance Tempo‘s growth with a sophesticated investor that can help take the Company to the next level. For the past year, AGC Partners has advised on the strategic aspects of Tempo's operations and growth strategy and assisted with the general presentation of the Tempo to investors in the technology sector. AGC Partners will now commence Tempo's formal investment process, aiming to attract a financial partner with extensive experience in growing software companies internationally. We believe this will best enable the continuation of product development at Tempo, its revenue growth, and value for owners, employees and customers."
