GTT Communications, Inc. Acquires Perseus

 

 GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), the leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients, announced today the acquisition of Perseus, a provider of high-speed network connectivity serving many of the world’s top financial and eCommerce companies.

  • This strategic combination: • Extends the reach of GTT’s global Tier 1 IP backbone with new points of presence and routes connecting key markets in Latin America, Asia Pacific, India, and South Africa, including Pacific Express, the new low latency route between Chicago and Tokyo
  • Increases GTT’s client base, adding clients in the financial service and eCommerce segments
  • Reinforces GTT’s market leadership in ultra-low latency services and augments cloud networking portfolio with financial market data services

The purchase price was $37.5 million, plus the assumption of approximately $3 million in capital leases. GTT expects that the purchase price will reflect a multiple of post-synergy adjusted EBITDA of 5.0x or lower, with integration and cost synergies to be achieved within two-quarters.
