SignUpGenius, the Ballantyne-based online event planning tool that reports 7 million monthly users, announced Monday it is acquiring online sign-up site Jooners in a deal expected to close by Dec. 31.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

SignUpGenius, founded in 2008 by Dan Rutledge and Michael Vadini, caters to a range of users looking to organize events - from parents organizing car pools to businesses coordinating employee training schedules.

In 2014, traffic rose 35 percent to 39.9 million visitors. And the company has grown from 13 employees this spring, to 20 now. This summer, SignUpGenius made its third move and is now in a 4,000-square-foot space that can accommodate growth.
