Hawaiian Telcom Completes Acquisition of Wavecom Solutions Corporation Print E-mail
Written by Hawaiian Telcom Holdco, Inc.   
Monday, 31 December 2012
Hawaiian Telcom Holdco, Inc. (Nasdaq:HCOM), Hawaii's leader in integrated communications solutions, today announced that its Hawaiian Telcom, Inc. subsidiary has completed the acquisition of all of the capital stock of Wavecom Solutions Corporation (Wavecom Solutions), an information and communications technology company and facilities-based competitive local exchange carrier headquartered in Honolulu.

HONOLULU, Dec. 31, 2012 -- Wavecom Solutions
provides voice, data and converged services to small and medium-sized
business and carrier customers through a six-island subsea and
terrestrial fiber network.

"We are pleased that the acquisition has closed and we can welcome
Wavecom Solutions' employees and loyal customers into our Hawaiian
Telcom family," stated Eric K. Yeaman, President and CEO of Hawaiian
Telcom. "By adding Wavecom Solutions' fiber network and business
capabilities to our technology and operations, we'll enhance our
ability to serve growing customer demand for high speed Internet
bandwidth and advanced communications."

With the acquisition complete and as integration of Wavecom Solutions'
fiber network occurs, Hawaiian Telcom's network capabilities will be
enhanced through augmentation of fiber capacity and diversity
statewide. The company will be better positioned to deliver next
generation, end-to-end solutions to customers throughout Hawaii and
drive long-term value for shareholders.

Hawaiian Telcom first announced the definitive purchase agreement to
acquire Wavecom Solutions on July 12, 2012. Approvals from the Federal
Communications Commission and Hawaii Public Utilities Commission were
obtained on December 28, 2012. The stock purchase transaction closed
today (Dec. 31, 2012) at a purchase price of approximately $9.6 million
(subject to adjustment based on final working capital calculations),
paid with existing liquidity using cash on hand. It is estimated that
the transaction will generate approximately $4.5 million of annual
unlevered free cash flow upon completion of integration activities as a
result of net incremental revenues and EBITDA of approximately $7
million and $3.5 million, respectively, as well as network related
capital expenditure synergies.
