Cork, Ireland, 8th December 2022: Spearline, a leading global provider of communication testing
technologies based in Co. Cork, Ireland, has acquired Callstats analytics, diagnostics and optimization
technology for WebRTC from 8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT) for an undisclosed sum. 8x8 is
headquartered in California, USA.
This acquisition will enable Spearline to utilise Callstats’ proprietary technology to provide the best
in class solution for testing and monitoring critical business telecommunication services for its global
client base. Spearline’s solutions provide businesses with the tools needed to improve and

huge step forward for Spearline. The integration of the Callstats patented technology, alongside our
earlier acquisition of testRTC, confirms Spearline’s position as the world’s number one provider of
communication testing technologies. We provide our customers with an all-encompassing solution
that no other vendor can offer, and we have a team of world class experts to continue our
development into the future.”

innovation on our highly differentiated 8x8 XCaaS cloud communications and contact center solution,
