NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 11/03/14 -- Fusion (NASDAQ: FSNN), a leading provider of cloud communications, cloud connectivity and cloud computing services, announced today that it has closed on the purchase of all of the outstanding shares of stock of PingTone Communications, Inc., a provider of integrated cloud-based communications services headquartered in Herndon, Virginia. Founded in January 2001, PingTone generated LTM revenue of $8.1 million as of June 30, 2014 and pro forma adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million, giving effect to anticipated cost synergies.

The PingTone transaction is Fusion's third acquisition in twenty-four months. It reflects the success of the company's strategy to grow through acquisition as well as organically, and meets its acquisition criteria in several significant ways. The acquisition will be immediately accretive to Fusion's EBITDA. In addition, it adds a loyal and growing enterprise customer base with high ARPU, positions the company to impact organic growth with a talented team of managers and staff to further help the company scale, provides a strong cross-sale and up-sale opportunity and can be tightly integrated into the company's existing infrastructure.

Acquisition Highlights

Strong Financial Profile
LTM Revenue of $8.1 million as of June 30, 2014, over 90% of which is recurring
Pro forma adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million
Over 62% gross margin
12% growth rate first nine months 2014 over same period of 2013
Growing Customer Base
More than 24,000 customer endpoints and 250 business customers concentrated in the energy, healthcare, finance, emergency response and national defense industry segments
Expands Fusion's reach into the government sector and the Washington, D.C. region
Higher than industry standard ARPU (Average Revenue per User) of over $2,900
Lower than industry standard churn of 0.5%
Adds an important component to the company's organic growth strategy by contributing a successful Direct Sales team to complement the company's own distribution network of approximately 500 active sales partners
Upon completion of the integration with PingTone, Fusion expects to achieve approximately $950,000 in annual cost synergies and additional revenue growth from the cross-sale and up-sale of the companies' combined products and services. The expected performance of the combined companies, and the integration of PingTone's experienced and highly skilled team of professionals, including a strong direct sales force, will allow Fusion to accelerate its organic growth plans as the company continues to pursue its acquisition strategy.

The aggregate purchase price for the transaction is $10.0 million (net of cash received), consisting of $7.5 million in cash and $2.5 million in common stock of Fusion. $5.0 million of the purchase price was funded by additional financing provided through the issuance of 5-year senior notes to Fusion's existing lenders -- Praesidian Capital, Plexus Capital and United Insurance Company of America.

+Matt Rosen, Fusion Chief Executive Officer, said, "Both companies are excited about the value we can create as we come together through this acquisition. It has been a pleasure to work on this transaction with Shelby Bryan, PingTone's Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. With decades of ground-breaking experience in communications, and having built, grown and sold successful companies as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Shelby's confidence in the combined company is especially gratifying. We're delighted that PingTone's shareholders share our vision in the company and look forward to increasing their value as we build the future."

PingTone's Shelby Bryan added, "We are impressed with Fusion's exceptional management team and their strategic plans for growing the business in the rapidly expanding cloud services industry. We believe in their mission to be the industry's single source provider for companies looking to access the many benefits the cloud brings to the enterprise. That is why, as PingTone shareholders, we are taking common stock in Fusion as part of the consideration. We look forward to participating in the combined companies' growth by lending active support to achieve its goals."

Don Hutchins, Fusion's President and Chief Operating Officer, said, "PingTone's success in delivering the highest standards of quality and support is evident in the low attrition and customer loyalty of its enterprise customers in the Washington, D.C. area, all of whom demand advanced solutions and service excellence. We believe that the combination will accelerate the companies' organic growth, with Fusion's nationwide cloud network and advanced cloud services platform extending PingTone's geographic reach and expanding its cloud solutions offering. In addition to adding significant contracted monthly recurring revenue, a growing base of loyal enterprise customers, and positive adjusted EBITDA, the acquisition adds a very experienced and highly qualified management team, direct sales organization and staff to Fusion's own experienced organization, helping us expand our ability to support an ever growing customer base."

Q Advisors LLC, a Denver and San Francisco based investment banking boutique, acted as exclusive financial advisor to PingTone.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measurements:

The company believes that EBITDA (earnings from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is useful to investors because it is commonly used in the communications industry to evaluate companies on the basis of operating performance and leverage. The company also believes that EBITDA provides investors with a measure of the company's operational and financial progress that corresponds with the measurements used by management as a basis for allocating resources and making other operating decisions. Adjusted EBITDA provides an adjusted view of EBITDA that takes into account certain significant non-recurring transactions, if any, such as impairment losses and professional fees associated with pending acquisitions, which vary significantly between periods and are not recurring in nature, as well as certain recurring non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation. Although the company uses adjusted EBITDA as one of several financial measures to assess its operating performance, its use is limited as it excludes certain significant operating expenses. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not intended to represent cash flows for the period presented, nor have they been presented as an alternative to operating income or as an indicator of operating performance and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP").

New #Melanoma   #Cancer  Treatments shows promise.

"Cancer has lots of ways it escapes the immune system. It kind of has like a cloaking shield, so it's invisible to the immune system. What these drugs do is it lifts the cloak off those tumor cells, so they can be recognized by the immune system. So the immune system can generate a response against the cancer. We're very excited about that. That's a very exciting avenue because the immunotherapy is not actually treating the melanoma itself. It's treating the immune system and allowing it to fight the cancer on its own. It's relatively non-toxic. It's well-toxic and in some people it is curative," said Skitzi.

Clinical trials are also looking at cellular immunotherapy which is when doctors take white blood cells out of the patient's body and grow them and then re-infuse them into the patient.

Melanoma is one of the deadliest types of cancers. In this edition of Healthy Living, Katie Gibas has the details on several clinical trials underway looking to change all that.

Thank you +Wayne Radinsky for sharing this.  Non-Toxic Cancer Treatments are needed.
 
South Korean scientists made genetically modified non-toxic (?) salmonella bacteria to deliver microscopic capsules filled with drugs directly to cancer tumors. The bacteria are drawn to the cancer by the chemicals secreted by cancer cells. They are calling these "nanorobots" but they are not "nanorobots" in the sense that you probably think (e.g. Robert Freitas's conception). The system has been tested on mice but hasn't been approved for testing on humans.

#LungCancer Days might be numbered. #FMI +Foundation Medicine Inc shows promise.
The collaboration will first capture clinical outcomes for patients with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the leading cancer killer of men and women in this country, who have undergone testing with FoundationOne. The resulting longitudinal data will aim to further demonstrate the clinical utility of comprehensive genomic profiling for patients with Stage IV NSCLC and to inform potential value-based reimbursement decisions from payers. The combination of genomic data, clinical information, outcomes data and economic data will provide critical insights for both payers and physicians to fully endorse the clinical and economic benefits associated with the application of comprehensive genomic profiling in this disease setting.

With more than one million skin cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. every year, it is the most common form of cancer.

"Even though the treatments we have are impressive and they've actually shown a difference in survival, a benefit, melanoma can still be a very deadly disease, especially if not caught early," said Dr. Joseph Skitzi, a +Roswell Park Cancer Institute  surgical oncologist."Melanoma is truly becoming an epidemic. The numbers are about 1 in 50 Caucasians will have an invasive melanoma in their lifetime."

Right now, the primary treatment is still surgery. For disease that has spread and when surgery may not be an option, doctors are using immunotherapy. #Cancer   #Tymewilltell

I hope this is Non-Toxic Cancer Treatment works well. #Cancer is an evil which needed to be eradicated ASAP.   #Tymewilltell  If you kill what fuels a cancer cell than the cells starve right?   #killcancer  

Please join this community https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112254666482366777923 Non-Toxic  SMK is unlike chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or immunotherapy, it lacks their associated toxicities.  SMK uses low doses of already approved agents along with proprietary amino acids. As a result, SMK has been shown to be well-tolerated, even in very late stage cancer patients who have been extensively pre-treated with numerous toxic treatments.
 
Hi Everyone,

Dr. Anthony Holland of Skidmore College is opening a laboratory to further his initial successful research into the non toxic destruction of cancer cells using pulsed electromagnetic fields. The device utilized is a scientific principles based,  modern day interpretation of  an instrument originally developed  in the 1930's,  known as a Rife Device . This instrument, and it's method of operation, is backed by multiple published and presented scientific papers on the device,  as well as existing science and publications . The laboratory space is in place and ready to go, all Dr. Holland needs is a relatively minor amount of funding to equip his new lab.

Please take a few minutes to look over this link, and then consider a donation.   Your donation is crucial in developing what is to become the 4th  method, a non toxic method,  of cancer treatment. Dr. Hollands initial results have been highly promising . Video's showing the destruction of cancer cells utilizing the device can be seen on the site.  But Dr. Holland needs funding  to continue and then complete his preliminary investigations. Your donation of  of just a few dollars  can help see that this happens. Your donation will also  allow Dr. Hollands' lab to develop methods and techniques that will move his results from the laboratory into actual clinical testing.

Here is the link :   http://www.indiegogo.com/p/237725


With Warmest Regards,

James E. Bare, D.C.

I called and asked what time he was going to leave. He stated 5:30 I busted my but to get there on time. I got there at 5:15 he was a no show. The very next day I went there at 8:15 and mentioned my call to him and that he left early. He blow up and was yelling at me. He was rude and lied. He claimed he was there at 5:27 (BS). He will never get my dollars again. Kiss my 35% tips good buy. The cut is not that good too. I went for him. Stay away. Barukh will ruin a perfectly good day.
