Otel is a nationwide provider of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and broadband Infrastructure-as-a-Service telecommunications solutions.The Transactions were implemented on 14 March 2019 and the Otel brand will be migrated to the Huge Networks brand during the course of 2019.The Transactions allow Huge Group to progress its 'Growing Huge Strategy' by scaling its operations and growing Huge's real estate of customers. In addition, the Transactions expand both the national reach and footprint of Huge, while also increasing its network capacity and connectivity options and allowing for network synergies and efficiencies.The Transactions are expected to be revenue accretive for Huge Networks. The combination of the management teams from Huge Networks and Otel will significantly enhance the intellectual capacity within the Telecom Grouping.The VoIP and related products and services acquired through the Transactions allows Huge Networks to become a more substantial provider of end-to-end ICT services.

We have already identified several areas of growth and the backing of Huge Group will unlock these growth initiatives', says Rad Jankovic, CEO of Otel.Dr Marius Oberholzer, who will remain the Managing Director of the enlarged Huge Networks and believes that the merger with Otel will allow Huge Networks to continue to leverage growth with the backing of the Huge brand.'The merger of these two promising telcos is entirely in line with Huge Group's stated focus. In implementing its 'Growing Huge Strategy', Huge Group continues to focus on unlocking opportunities through the strategic acquisition of successful and complementary subsidiary operations' says James Herbst, CEO of the Huge Group.'Huge Group needs to continue to augment its existing offering by making strategic acquisitions like Otel.
