Speech-recognition software maker Nuance Communications said Friday it will extend its all-cash offer to acquire Zi Corp. by an additional two weeks.
In August, Nuance first offered to purchase Canada-based Zi for 80 cents per share. That offer was rejected and in November Nuance made a repriced offering of 40 cents per share, based on the deteriorating economic environment.
The company said Friday it has extended the offer to Feb. 13, from a prior closing date of Jan. 30. [click heading for more]

Let's Fix Things: For over two decades I've been consulting in Communications Design: Everything from business strategy and processes, through to technology, interaction and customer experience. The thoughts here are my own, not necessarily that of my employer.
I have a penchant for spotting patterns and fixing broken user and customer experiences. Even my Bumblebee project hasn't escaped - I've been using Six Sigma techniques to study and predict their behaviour patterns. ☺
