NASHUA, N.H., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GN Netcom today announced an
agreement to divest its North American direct reseller business, Hello Direct,
Inc., to Synergy Communications Management. The agreement allows GN Netcom to
focus on the company's rich heritage as a leader in the development and

Hello Direct will continue under the new ownership.  

"The agreement with Synergy underscores the commitment and dedication we have
to our channel partners and providing them with the tools they need in order
to be successful," said Pete Fox, president, GN Netcom. "We looked long and
hard for the right partner to lead Hello Direct to greater success and truly

acquisition of Hello Direct will both strengthen relationships with existing
customers and open up opportunities for new relationships," said Dottie

huge opportunity for all parties involved."

The sale enables Jabra North America to focus on opportunities for hands-free
solutions for contact centers and offices as well as the fast-growing Unified
