Here are some of the characteristics of this international hosting companies acquisition strategy:
The CFIE hosting M&A team helps hosting buyers in acquisitions. In this case the work done is mainly upfront. The work consists in sourcing the right targets for an acquisition. The CFIE hosting M&A team sees the importance of an efficient hosting industry. The growth of the hosting industry has become much lower and many portfolio’s are lying idle. We believe it is most efficient for a hosting owners to sell the portfolio and focus on other activities. The CFIE hosting M&A team has a good direct contact to hosting business owners and can support sellers in a sale of smaller hosting portfolio’s.
