ExpressVPN sold / bought

Saw this in the news - not sure what the ramifications will be long term.
Does make me concerned for the logging policy though.

Billionaire Teddy Sagi’s software group Kape Technologies has inked a deal to buy a major virtual private network provider for almost $1bn.

London-listed Kape will pay around $936m in a combination of cash and shares to acquire ExpressVPN in what is set to be the largest deal for a British tech firm in recent years.

Kape will pay $354m in cash when the deal closes and the equivalent of $237m in shares, which can be sold after a 24-month lockup, the company said in a statement on Monday.

I hope this doesn’t mean that there is less effort to overcome geolocking restrictions. I regularly go to Asia, and Express is the only VPN that works well against the “great firewall” of China.
