Brazilian data center operator Telium Networks has acquired local IT and data center solutions company Datadrome for an undisclosed amount, news source Baguete reported.
With the purchase, Telium will take on a data center client base with 260 clients, of which some 75% come from Rio Grande do Sul state, where Datadrome is based.
Datadrome's business focus is on hosting, cloud computing and emails solutions. Under the terms of the deal, its partners shall remain at the helm of the company, even after its incorporation into Telium.
Telium, which has a client base of more than 5,000, predicts sales revenues this year of 22mn reais (US$13.7mn), up 5% from 2010.
And further acquisitions are in the company's plans. "We've made five purchases since we started business in 2004, and we expect to make another three in 2012," Telium president Nivaldo Custódio was quoted saying.
He also predicted that by the end of the year, the company will have invested a total of 5mn reais in expanding its structure.
Founded in 2004, Telium has data centers in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Campinas and Santos, as well as a presence in the US.
