Husband and wife team Dan and Linda Kiely struck one of the big Irish tech deals of the decade when they sold a 55pc stake of Voxpro to the Canadian firm, Telus International, for a cash consideration of CA$58m (€39m). The Canadian company also entered into a put-and-call option for the remaining 45pc of the shares beginning in 2021 that would see total consideration estimated at approximately CA$152m (€102.7m). The pair had met when they worked on the short-lived magazine, Cork Scene. They set up a paging business, which started out in 2002 with six people.
