On the 1st of March 2014 FoneWorx acquired 48% share in Livingfacts.
Livingfacts is a BEE aligned network based organization. The company was formed in 2001 when three partners decided to pool their years of business and research experience. A commitment was made to offer uncompromising research quality underpinned by exceptional customer service; something that is as true today as it was back then.
On the 31st of July 2014 FoneWorx acquired 35% share in BMi.
Cognition Holdings has subsequently purchased 100% of BMi Research.
