Indianapolis-based T2 Systems Inc. announced Friday that it has acquired Digital Payment Technologies, another parking software firm headquartered near Vancouver, British Columbia.

Financial terms were not disclosed, and T2 Systems did not immediately respond to messages. T2 Systems said its new CEO, David Sparks, would be CEO of the combined companies, but that operating leadership would remain in place in both locations.

The deal, which combines two of the larger leaders in the segment, is expected to close in the first quarter.

T2 Systems has been prepping for growth since it raised a $28 million investment from Pamlico Capital of Charlotte, N.C., in 2012.

Sparks was recruited in October from TransCore LP, a Harrisburg, Pa.-based transportation software developer he founded, to replace T2 Systems co-founder and CEO Mike Simmons, who felt the company had outgrown his ability to shepherd it to a significantly larger size.

The company has about 140 workers, including 75 in Indianapolis.

The last time T2 Systems reported revenue, in 2010, it had $20.5 million, up from $12.4 million in 2007.

Last year, the company’s growth fell short of hiring and investment goals it promised the city of Indianapolis in 2007 in order to receive tax abatements.

Simmons, who started the company in 1994, told IBJ in October that he planned to take a year off beginning Jan. 1 in order to relax and refocus.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
