CenturyLink and Savvis Complete Merger
Posted: 15-Jul-2011 [Source: CenturyLink]

[The CenturyLink and Savvis merger creates a managed hosting and colocation provider with global scale.]

Monroe, LA -- CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL - News) and Savvis, Inc. today completed their previously announced merger. The combination creates a premier managed hosting and colocation provider with global scale positioned for leadership in meeting customer demand for outsourced IT and cloud services.

"The combination of CenturyLink's hosting and network assets with Savvis' proven solutions in colocation, managed hosting and cloud services substantially enhances CenturyLink's capabilities and immediately provides the company with a solid platform for future growth," said Glen F. Post, III, chief executive officer and president of CenturyLink. "The transaction helps us meet the accelerating demand for cloud-based services through a robust hosting presence, including 48 data centers in North America, Europe and Asia. CenturyLink is now positioned to address complex customer needs with our colocation, hosting and cloud products."

Later this year, CenturyLink plans to integrate its hosting business with Savvis' managed hosting and cloud services to focus on increasing CenturyLink's market share in these services. The integrated hosting business, which will operate under the Savvis brand for the foreseeable future, will be based in St. Louis and led primarily by key members of the Savvis leadership team, including chief executive officer Jim Ousley.

Under the terms of the agreement, Savvis stockholders will receive $30 per share in cash and 0.2479 of a share of CenturyLink common stock (which had a value of $10 based on the valuation formula in the merger agreement) for each Savvis share held at the close of the transaction.

At closing, CenturyLink also prepaid approximately $546 million of Savvis' credit facility debt.

CenturyLink expects the combination to improve its revenue, EBITDA and free cash flow growth profile, and also expects to realize approximately $70 million in full run-rate annual operating cost and capital expenditure synergies. The transaction is expected to be accretive to CenturyLink's free cash flow per share, as adjusted to exclude integration costs, in the first full year following the close.
