BOSTON, March 11, 2014 – Bowen Advisors is pleased to announce that Performance Technologies (Nasdaq: PTIX) (“PT”), a provider of Diameter and SS7 signaling solutions for wireline and wireless service providers, has been acquired by Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications.
