McLean, VA, October 22, 2015 — GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), a leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients, announced today the completion of the acquisition of One Source Networks (OSN), a provider of global data, Internet, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking and managed services to Fortune 1000 companies. GTT paid $175 million for the acquisition, including approximately $164 million in cash and $11 million in GTT stock, plus approximately $5 million in cash for an estimated working capital surplus as of the closing date.
“The addition of One Source Networks accelerates our growth strategy by bringing established relationships with multinational enterprises, broadening our portfolio of cloud networking services and expanding our global network,” said Rick Calder, GTT President and CEO. “GTT adds a growing recurring revenue base, a talented sales force, Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Sydney and Bogotá and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services, including SIP trunking and hosted PBX.”
