Q: When will this transaction take place?
A: Today we announced the signing of an agreement to acquire cPanel. After signing, there are a number of steps that need to take place before the transaction is final.

Q: What management changes are anticipated?
A: Nick will remain the CEO of cPanel following the transaction, and cPanel will remain headquartered in Houston, Texas USA.


Q: Why did Nick sell his interest?
A: Both Oakley and Nick have the same vision: a customer-focused business that puts support first. This transaction will enable significant investment in new product and feature innovation and will support growth in headcount in Houston, Texas where cPanel will continue to be headquartered.

The transaction also gives cPanel and its employees additional visibility, experience, and resources associated with a larger company. The company will have additional access to thought leaders in the Internet infrastructure industry.

When Nick started cPanel, his vision was to provide small companies with a way to compete with larger companies. This vision hasn’t changed, indeed, there is more need than ever to provide this type of platform for small to medium sized hosting businesses to compete in a market that is more complicated than ever. This transaction gives cPanel the ability to provide more of those resources to its customers than it has in the past.





Q: Why choose Oakley?
A: The companies in which Oakley has invested continue to maintain positive employee sentiment and have maintained or improved their GlassdoorR reviews post-investment. This was an important consideration for Nick when making his decision.

A:Oakleyが投資した会社は、引き続き従業員の好感を維持し、投資後のGlassdoor Rのレビューを維持または改善しました。これは、Nickが決断を下す際の重要な考慮事項でした。

Q: What are the benefits to customers?
A: Customers will benefit from the significant investment in new product and feature innovation. The cPanel platform will grow to provide an improved user experience.

A:お客様は、新製品および機能の革新への多大な投資から恩恵を受けます。 cPanelプラットフォームは、ユーザーエクスペリエンスを向上させるために成長します。

A:お客様からの直接的な影響はありません。 cPanelは引き続き独立した事業として運営されます。

Q: Will cPanel keep its name?
A: Yes. We fully anticipate that cPanel will keep its name, and be managed separately until a time, if any, when integration with other Oakley group companies is in the best interests of the companies and minimizes any impact to customers and employees.
