Thalamus Networks concludes definitive agreement with TurnIT to acquire Fiberdata

Thalamus Networks concludes definitive agreement with TurnIT to acquire Fiberdata Thalamus Networks AB has today concluded a definitive agreement with TurnIT to acquire Fiberdata AB. The purchase price is MSEK 20, with the possibility of a small supplementary payment. The purchase price is lower than the originally announced MSEK 58 due to a change in the content of the transaction between the parties and a change in business conditions. The purchase price will be lower than previously announced as a consequence of the unexpected cancellation on September 20, 2002 of an agreement Fiberdata had with a major customer, MKB Fastighets AB. Fiberdata concluded a frame agreement with MKB Fastighets AB during the third quarter of 2000 for deliveries in a total amount of MSEK 100. - It's a good thing that the deal is now completed and that the Group's resources can now be concentrated on operations. In our judgment, Fiberdata possesses good profitability potential. However, it will take longer than previously anticipated to make the company profitable, says Jan Norman, President & CEO of Thalamus Networks AB in a comment. - Our ambition is to resolve the problems that have arisen with MKB Fastighets AB and we are hoping for a continued customer relationship, says Torbjörn Eriksen, President & CEO of Fiberdata AB.
