Sangoma, a trusted leader in delivering Unified Communications, has entered into a definitive agreement on August 23, 2018 to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Digium. The deal is expected to close on or about August 31, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.

Sangoma and Digium have a long history of working together, while also competing in the marketplace, and have gotten to know each other very well over the years.  Our relationship and mutual respect allows us both to know that the strategic fit between the two businesses really is excellent.

This transaction will add very meaningful sales, create market leadership in our segment, increase recurring revenue materially, and allow us to nicely leverage our complimentary businesses.  During a time of industry consolidation, this transformative merger is another bold step for us in implementing our strategy to scale up and increase shareholder value, by augmenting our organic growth with complementary M&A opportunities.

To the new staff that will be joining us, I’d like to welcome you to the growing Sangoma family. To our Digium customers and partners around the globe, I’d like to assure you that everyone here at Sangoma remains committed to you, to the Digium products you rely upon, and to further contributing to your success.  And of course, to the Asterisk community, I would like to reassure you that Sangoma recognises the value of Asterisk and is committed to keeping it open source. We will continue to invest in its development and to seek input from the broad base of developers that has led to its outstanding success.

Bill Wignall

President and CEO, Sangoma
