Ingram Micro to boost UC NetXUSA acquisition
Ingram Micro has acquired US-based NETXUSA, a unified communications and collaboration value-added distributor focused on VOIP solutions and IP phones for telecommunications service providers and resellers.
The purchase is expected to contribute more than $125 million in annual revenue.
According to a statement, NETXUSA's management team and associates are expected to remain in place, operating as an integrated division of Ingram Micro.
Alain Monié, Ingram Micro CEO, says NETXUSA complements Ingram Micro's established UCC business, bringing a strong portfolio of IP communications products from leading technology companies, including Cisco, Digium, Edgewater, Polycom and Yealink.
"NETXUSA is an excellent addition to the Ingram Micro portfolio and is well aligned with our strategy to accelerate growth in high value markets,” Monié explains.
“NETXUSA has a strong and well established leadership position in the U.S. UCC market and a history of robust revenue growth and profitability,” he says.
“In addition, Ingram Micro gains immediate access to a new telecom service provider customer set, relationships we expect to leverage across our global organisation,” he says. “We welcome the NETXUSA management team and associates to the Ingram Micro family."
Rick Boone, NETXUSA CEO says he expects the NETXUSA's customer and vendor partners to benefit, “from access to a broader product and services portfolio, greater geographic reach, global partnership opportunities and access to new solutions, such as value-added lifecycle services and a world-class supply chain.
“Our associates will have new opportunities as part of a larger organisation and I am confident that we will be able to accelerate growth and profitability as a part of the Ingram Micro family,” he says.
