SmartBear has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Bugsnag.

The addition of Bugsnag further bolsters SmartBear's offering that supports quality-first initiatives across every aspect of software delivery.

“SmartBear solutions cover the critical areas of design, development, test management and automation, and Bugsnag adds app stability in production environments to our full span of SDLC coverage. This addition amplifies our rapid growth we’ve seen over the past few years and solidifies the position of SmartBear as the first choice for millions of developers and software teams around the globe.” said Frank Roe, CEO of SmartBear.

“Bugsnag and SmartBear share a common mission to help software teams accelerate the delivery of high quality software, so this coming together is a no-brainer for us and our customers.” said James Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of Bugsnag.

“An accelerated shift to DevOps, among other existing digital transformation initiatives, has really taken off over the past year,” said Vineeta Puranik, SVP of Engineering at SmartBear. “Those shifts require testing to be performed earlier and by developers alongside testers. Bugsnag empowers development teams to make data-driven decisions around app quality, and the solution’s ease of use and seamless integrations make it a perfect fit for the SmartBear portfolio.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions.
