In August 2018, Vonage acquired TokBox Inc. ("TokBox"), a subsidiary of Telefonica, S.A. in an all-cash transaction for an enterprise value of $35 million, including assumed liabilities.

TokBox significantly expands Vonage's total addressable market. The addition also broadens the Company's API portfolio via Nexmo, the Vonage API Platform beyond voice, SMS and IP messaging, enabling developers and enterprises to integrate live video into websites, mobile apps, and IoT devices - with just a few lines of code. With TokBox now a part of the Vonage platform, developers benefit from a simple, flexible and scalable programmable video solution to create engaging, embedded communications experiences.
"The acquisition of TokBox furthers Vonage's programmable communications offering as a part of the Nexmo platform. Moreover, the acquisition demonstrates Vonage's ability to create communication solutions for businesses by successfully calibrating and executing its M&A strategy for growth," said Shanta Kumari, CEO and Group Global Editor at Global M&A Network.
