Tickets.com Inc. said Wednesday it acquired British ticketing software company Dataculture Ltd. for an undisclosed amount of cash, a move that is intended to strengthen the Costa Mesa company's international presence.

Dataculture will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Tickets.com, a Costa Mesa online provider of entertainment tickets and event information.

Last week, Tickets.com received a $55-million investment from Internet portal company Excite@Home and $30 million from Cox Interactive Media. The company said in June it would launch an initial public offering to raise $75 million.
