RealNetworks lays off 100 staff

Seattle’s RealNetworks Inc. last week laid off roughly 100 employees, about 35 of them in Seattle and the rest in Asia and Europe, spokesman Bill Hankes said.

The cuts were made across the board to reduce “redundancies” built up as a result of six acquisitions made by RealNetworks over the past two years, Hankes said.

They are the first layoffs the company has made since those purchases, he said.

RealNetworks had about 1,800 workers worldwide before the cuts, Hankes said, adding that no further layoffs are planned.
