Broadview Networks Completes Acquisition of InfoHighway Communications

Jun 15, 2020

June 07, 2007 12:58 PM Eastern Daylight Time RYE BROOK, N.Y.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Broadview Networks Holdings, Inc. today announced that on May 31, 2007 it completed the acquisition of InfoHighway Communications, a New York-based provider of hosted and managed communications solutions serving business customers in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the U.S. The combined company serves approximately 80,000 small and mid-sized business customers in 20 markets from Maine to Virginia, including major metropolitan areas such as New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and the Baltimore-Washington corridor. Broadview Networks continues to invest in its future growth through both organic means and strategic acquisitions. By focusing on its proven expertise in advanced communications solutions, the company delivers a comprehensive suite of integrated voice and data communications, hosted VoIP applications, and managed network solutions. The Broadview family, including InfoHighway (itself a combination of Eureka Broadband and InfoHighway) and ATX Communications, which joined the corporate family last year, generated annual revenues in excess of $500 million in 2006 on a combined basis. With over 2,400 route miles of fiber, approximately 250 colocations, over 500 lit commercial office buildings, and more than 800,000 lines in service, the combined privately-held entity is powered by a state-of-the-art network of 11 switches featuring a core IP platform that supports MPLS throughout the entire footprint and metro-Ethernet capabilities throughout the major network hubs. “The addition of InfoHighway is the latest of many major milestones for Broadview Networks,” said Michael K. Robinson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadview Networks. “As we successfully conclude the integration of Broadview and ATX, the timing is perfect to blend InfoHighway’s assets and talents into our expanding operations. The union of these three solid enterprises creates a leading competitive alternative for small and mid-size companies seeking a partner to help them meet their communications infrastructure, security, and productivity needs. “Broadview is a very asset-rich company with strong customer relationships and significant network resources,” continued Robinson. “In addition to our traditional core businesses, we are very excited about major growth engines such as our hosted IP based PBX offerings, MPLS solutions, and the many managed services we’re entrusted to provide to our business customers. Over the coming months, as Broadview, ATX, and InfoHighway come together under the Broadview Networks name, we’re confident that our customers, employees, partners, and investors will see the tremendous power and promise of this newly formed company.” Purchase consideration for the InfoHighway transaction included both cash and an equity interest in the combined company to be held by the former InfoHighway stockholders. Broadview financed the cash consideration for the transaction with a portion of the proceeds of its May offering of $90 million of additional 11 3/8% Senior Secured Notes due 2012. The remainder of the proceeds of the notes offering will be used for general corporate purposes and transaction expenses. The Senior Secured Notes were offered to qualified institutional buyers as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to non-U.S. persons outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act and to a limited number of institutional accredited investors within the meaning of Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) of the Securities Act. Broadview Networks has agreed to offer to exchange the Senior Secured Notes for notes registered under the Securities Act in 2007. Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP advised Broadview Networks. DH Capital, LLC advised InfoHighway Communications.
