The purchase was finalized on Monday, August 29, 2011 in Potsdam, Germany.

"RapidEye will continue to operate as an independent company, leveraging a new strong German management team in order to maintain its successful brand and relationships," commented Ryan Johnson, President and CEO of Iunctus Geomatics. "Iunctus will continue to invest in RapidEye as we focus on creating a more customer-focused approach and additional value for our customers through our reorganization activities."
