Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM:DWCH), the leading global provider of report analytics products and services, today announced that it has completed the previously announced purchase of the intellectual property underlying its Monarch Report Analytics platform from Raymond Huger, d/b/a Math Strategies.

The $8.5 million purchase was funded through the combination of a $4.0 million subordinated note with warrants from Massachusetts Capital Resource Company, $1.5 million of a $2.0 million working capital loan from Silicon Valley Bank and Datawatch's cash balances. The transaction is expected to be accretive from a cash point of view as the savings in royalty payments should exceed the cash interest and additional costs. From an earnings perspective, the amortization of the intellectual property purchase and the non-cash interest expense from the warrants will result in an annual non-cash charge to earnings of $1.8 million during the 5 year amortization period of the intellectual property.
