The inspiration to team up with a global company came in late 2021 during one of our regular meetings of POLOT - (Polish Association of the Language Service Providers). At getit, we realized we needed to be part of a global platform to offer more to our international clients. Out of all the companies we spoke to, Summa Linguae’s culture made them the obvious choice.

Summa Linguae paid approximately USD 4.3M in cash and two potential annual earn-out installments to acquire 100% stake in getit.

This acquisition will add an estimated USD 3.5M in revenue and USD 0.9M in EBITDA to Summa’s annual consolidated revenues.
