  • Global Capacity has maintained its strong customer and supplier relationships throughout the process

Global Capacity, the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics company, announces it has completed the sale of substantially all of its assets to GC Pivotal, LLC, an affiliate company of the leading investment firm Pivotal Group. With this transaction now complete, the Company moves forward as a privately-held company with a strong balance sheet and no debt. GC Pivotal, LLC will go to market as Global Capacity, offering the same innovative solutions that customers have come to expect.

"Global Capacity now has the financial strength and strategic backing required to invest in and evolve our innovative One Marketplace Access Exchange platform," states Patrick Shutt, CEO of Global Capacity. "We are pleased that Pivotal Group has recognized the unique value offering of this platform, and we look forward to continuing to provide the highest quality solutions and services to our customers and prospects. And notably, we are extremely grateful for the loyalty of our customers and suppliers as we completed this process."

This acquisition transfers Global Capacity's business into a privately-held company with no debt and positive monthly cash flow from operations. The Company has maintained strong customer and supplier relationships throughout its restructuring process, and with the completion of this transaction, Global Capacity has the financial support from Pivotal required to advance the Company's organic growth objectives, while investing in further expansion of its One Marketplace Access Exchange.

"We are extremely pleased to complete our Global Capacity transaction," continues Francis Najafi, CEO of Pivotal Group. "The One Marketplace Access Exchange is a unique platform in a very large, inefficient global fiber market. We believe that this innovative platform is on the verge of exponential growth," he added.

The sale was approved by the count in the Global Capacity bankruptcy case, and the details on the asset transfer may be found there. The court will supervise the post-sale wind-down of the bankruptcy.
