Kelowna computer data GigaCentre sold for $33 million

TeraGo Inc. will acquire RackForce for $31 million cash and $2 million in common shares.

RackForce Networks, the largest Canadian enterprise cloud services provider that services national and global clients from its Kelowna-based GigaCenter, has entered into a multi-million definitive share purchase agreement with TeraGo Inc.

TeraGo, a national provider of complete end-to-end data solutions, will acquire 100 per cent  of the issued and outstanding shares of RackForce for aggregate cash consideration of $31 million and $2 million of common shares of the company, an aggregate purchase price of $33 million.

RackForce’s GigaCenter in Kelowna increases TeraGo’s data center footprint from 40,000 to 58,000 square feet of raised floor space and available power from 6MW to approximately 13MW.

“The RackForce acquisition provides TeraGo with a growth platform in the attractive cloud services industry and helps further position TeraGo as a leading national end-to-end data solution company,” said TeraGo’s president and chief executive officer Stewart Lyons.

“RackForce will complement our business and transforms TeraGo into Canada’s premier enterprise class network, data, voice and cloud services provider.”

RackForce serves multiple enterprise customers across numerous verticals, including federal and provincial governments, and education. RackForce’s top-25 customers generate average monthly revenue of more than $17,000.

“We recognize the value, expertise and experience RackForce exhibits as a proven cloud partner for enterprise clients running mission-critical applications,”  Lyons continued. “We warmly welcome RackForce professionals and we are excited to enter into a new phase of our business at TeraGo.”

The acquisition is expected to close on or about March 27.
