London, UNITED KINGDOM – 29 July 2011 – euNetworks GmbH, a subsidiary of euNetworks Group Limited (SGX: H23.SI), announced today that it has executed and completed a definitive agreement to acquire German based TeraGate AG Storage Optical Network (“TeraGate”), a company of DB Industrial Holdings Beteiligungs GmbH & Co. KG (a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank AG), and of EGORA Holding GmbH. The acquisition is a natural addition to the Group following the LambdaNet acquisition, with an enterprise customer base predominantly served in the German market. The acquisition closed today.
TeraGate is a leading service provider for next generation Corporate WAN in Germany with a high-end customer base and a market leading value proposition. Offering both national and international solutions to medium and large enterprises, TeraGate’s product portfolio is based on intelligent Ethernet and efficient data centre and cloud services. TeraGate operates in Germany, headquartered in Munich, with technical headquarters in Frankfurt.
“The acquisition of TeraGate was a natural next step for us following the LambdaNet acquisition as we continue to develop our German business,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “TeraGate has a great customer base, who predominantly purchase multiple services across 7 of the existing euNetworks metropolitan markets in Germany. Leveraging euNetworks’ legacy metropolitan footprint, we expect to be able to bring over 50 buildings on-net, eliminating network expense. Additionally, LambdaNet’s Pan German footprint and operations are expected to provide further synergies.”
“This transaction will provide greater service options across a wider geography for TeraGate’s customers,” said Jürgen Hansjosten, Chief Executive Officer of TeraGate.” The network footprint and portfolio now available to our customers will continue to strengthen the trusted relationships we have in place today. Furthermore, we can now deliver scalable solutions more efficiently and effectively to enterprises who rely on us for their communications needs.”
“We are delighted to welcome TeraGate to euNetworks,” said Brady Rafuse. “TeraGate’s product set is highly complementary to euNetworks’ and there is clear value to be created from leveraging the euNetworks and LambdaNet backbones and metropolitan networks for TeraGate service delivery going forward. While we quickly work through integration to realise synergies and grow revenues, we remain focused on delivering a great service to all of our customers and growing our opportunity further.”
