Hammer announced today that it has closed on the acquisitions of 1stPoint Communications, Open Data Centers, and Shelcomm. The acquisition of Endstream Communications is currently pending regulatory approval.
The terms of the acquisitions were released via an 8K on September 12, 2018 and amended on November 6. The structure of the acquisitions is both accretive and non-dilutive to common shareholders.
“Upon closing the acquisitions Hammer now has all of the components in place to begin to execute on its ‘Everything Wireless’ strategy,” said Erik Levitt, Hammer’s Chief Executive Officer.
The newly acquired assets include strong intellectual property in over-the-top technology such as hosted carrier switching for both voice and SMS, CLEC licenses in Florida and New York, and a nationwide Ccommercial Mobile Radio Services License.
Through its subsidiaries, Hammer will complement its carrier offerings with a variety of hosting services including cloud computing, virtual servers, virtual desktop and collaboration tools that fully integrate voice, video, messaging and file sharing. Open Data Centers offers colocation from its Piscataway, NJ facility as well as its edge data center in Homewood, Alabama.
Hammer’s “everything wireless” strategy will include four key services: high speed fixed wireless using the proprietary Hammer Wireless AIR technology, mobility, OTT and smart city.
“Our intention is to provide these services both directly to consumers as well as through unique programs such as the Mobile Network Service Provider (MNSP) program, announced jointly earlier in 2018,” said Kristen Vasicek, 1stPoint’s Director of Marketing.
“Wireless communications, mobility and cloud services represent the future of our industry,” said Levitt. “Whether it’s in the United States, developed or developing economies, Hammer’s breadth of services now has a place in markets worldwide.”
