Microsoft may be looking to acquire the company behind popular task management service Wunderlist, 6Wunderkinder. According to German publication Manager Magazin, talks between the two companies are "well advanced."
One possible reason for the sale could be user growth. Wunderlist currently boasts 13 million users globally, with CEO Christian Reber looking to get to 100 million users in the near future. To that effort, the company launched an API earlier this month, which allows Wunderlist to be integrated into other services. Currently, Microsoft-owned Sunrise Calendar has incorporated the API, allowing integration with the task management service.
If the deal goes through, it will be the latest in a string of acquisitions by Microsoft in the productivity segment. The Redmond-based giant bought Android and iOS e-mail client Acompli late last year for a rumored $200 million, integrating its technology into the latest iteration of the Outlook app for Android. Earlier this year, Microsoft acquired Sunrise Calendar for around $100 million.
At this stage, there's no confirmation from either Microsoft or 6Wunderkinder regarding a sale. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more on the matter.
