Ascender was formed a few years ago by the top engineers and executives
from Monotype shortly after Agfa sold Monotype to TA Associates.

The Lucida fonts is a huge font family that is developed by Bigelow &
Holmes. They licensed different versions of their fonts to different
companies and organizations, free of charge, on a retail commercial
basis and on an OEM basis. For example, both Apple and Microsoft license
some Lucida fonts on OEM basis and bundle them with their operating
systems and some applications such as Microsoft Office. Ascender
Corporation resells the Microsoft versions to clients who don't have the
respective OS or application. Also, Elsner+Flake resells some Type 1 and
OpenType versions of the fonts. For example, both the E+F and the
Ascender versions are available at MyFonts.
I believe that TUG also has a license to distribute some versions of the
fonts. The versions distributed by different vendors are not necessarily
compatible when it comes to character sets, metrics or proportions.
