"The acquisition of HaCon will enable us enter a completely new business area that complements our current portfolio, expanding it to include timetable scheduling as well as trip planning by passengers," said Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens' Mobility Division, in a statement.

HaCon will be managed as a separate legal entity and wholly-owned subsidiary of Siemens AG in the Mobility Division.

"Together with a strong partner like Siemens AG, we'll be even better equipped to drive the mobility software business, particularly in the global market," said Michael Frankenberg, CEO HaCon.
