Bending Spoons acquires Evernote


The popular note-taking app Evernote has been acquired by Milan-based app developer Bending Spoons. The transaction is expected to close in early 2023. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bending Spoons is known for the video editing app Splice and the AI image editing tool Remini. Although the developer makes good mobile apps, Bending Spoons is still not a big name. Bending Spoons recently raised $340 million and will use this funds to improve its apps.

“Teaming up with Bending Spoons will speed that journey, accelerating the delivery of improvements across our Teams, Professional, Personal, and Free offerings,” Evernote CEO Ian Small said.

Small further confirmed that ownership change won’t affect Evernote. Evernote customers’ data will be safe and secure as it used to be.

Evernote was founded by Russian-American entrepreneur Stepan Pachikov in 2000. Initially, Evernote was launched for Windows and later came to the web, smartphones, and Mac. After coming to several platforms, Evernote grew really well and raised multiple rounds of funding. The app was valued at nearly a billion dollars in 2013.
