Nitro PDF Software announces acquisition of PrimoPDF
Posted on 11-Feb-2009 17:49. | Tags Filed under: News.

Nitro PDF Software has announced the acquisition of PrimoPDF, the world's most popular free PDF creator, from activePDF, Inc.

PrimoPDF is a free tool for high-quality PDF creation, comprising a user-friendly interface that enables printing to PDF from virtually any Windows application. Since its launch in February 2004, PrimoPDF has rapidly become the world's most widely-used tool for free, basic conversion to PDF with millions of users to date.

"This acquisition represents an excellent strategic fit and we're delighted to officially welcome PrimoPDF to Nitro's growing family of free PDF solutions," stated Sam Chandler, CEO of Nitro PDF Software. "Our core belief has always been that basic PDF creation should be free for everyone, without compromising quality or user experience. Since its launch in 2004, PrimoPDF has been hugely popular, primarily because it's always been easy to use, with no annoying pop-ups or feature bloat." Chandler concluded, "While the premium Nitro product suite is the perfect complement to PrimoPDF, enabling users to tap into additional features such as PDF editing, conversion to Word, and PDF forms creation at one third of the cost of an Acrobat solution, we're fully committed to continuing to enhance PrimoPDF and look forward to introducing several exciting new features in 2009."

Nitro PDF Software is one of the world's leading PDF software vendors and the company behind Nitro PDF Professional, an alternative to Adobe Acrobat. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Nitro PDF Software has operations spanning North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

The software provides full control over PDF documents, including commenting, form-filling and authoring, digital signatures, text editing, one-click creation from Microsoft® ffice and more.

"We're very proud of how popular PrimoPDF has become over the last five years," said Tim Sullivan, activePDF's CEO. "While we maintain the focus of our business on server-based technology, we're confident Nitro will continue to improve PrimoPDF and, more importantly, maintain the vision of truly free PDF creation on the desktop."
