INAP Completes Acquisition of SingleHop
ATLANTA, Feb. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Internap Corporation (NASDAQ:INAP), a provider of high-performance data center services including colocation, managed hosting, cloud and network services, today announced the completion of its acquisition of SingleHop LLC, a leading provider of hosted private clouds and managed hosting for $132 million in cash. INAP previously announced the acquisition on January 29, 2018.
The transaction was funded with an incremental term loan and cash from the balance sheet. As part of the financing, INAP obtained an amendment to its credit agreement to allow for the incremental term loan and to provide further operational flexibility under the covenants. The Company has no immediate plans to raise additional capital.
The planning and implementation for the integration of SingleHop into INAP is in progress. The innovative platform will strengthen INAP’s current capabilities in managed hosting and services and expand the addressable market for SingleHop’s services across INAP’s global data center footprint.
Peter D. Aquino, President and CEO of INAP, stated, “We are pleased with the speed of this strategic deal from signing to close enabling us to provide our combined customers the full suite of INAP and SingleHop services and capabilities. INAP’s decision to buy versus build these advanced capabilities affords us both SingleHop’s expertise and a great growth catalyst for 2018. We are excited to welcome SingleHop’s talented employees to our team as part of our vision to expand and build INAP’s value proposition and power to generate sustainable growth.”
