NetSuite shops for its retail platform

Contact: Brenon Daly

One year after Retail Anywhere released its point-of-sales SuiteApp for NetSuite, the startup has been rolled into the on-demand ERP giant. Terms of the deal, which is NetSuite’s first since mid-2009, weren’t released. However, we suspect the price is probably in the $20-30m range of NetSuite’s two previous acquisitions.

Entirely bootstrapped through its 18 years of incorporation, Retail Anywhere has about 30 employees, with CEO Branden Jenkins taking a general manager role at NetSuite. According to our understanding, Retail Anywhere was generating roughly $5m of sales. For its part, NetSuite will likely report more than $300m of revenue for 2012 when it releases its financial results in early February. The market currently values NetSuite at a stratospheric $5bn.
