Top Denver network installer merges A/V assets to create market leader

LINX makes third acquisition in four years

Denver, Colo. (May 31, 2011) – Denver-based LINX, a $32 million communication infrastructure provider, signed a merger agreement Tuesday with Solstice Multimedia that combines Solstice and the Audio-Video division of LINX to form a new subsidiary — LINX Multimedia, LLLP.

Prior to the merger, privately owned LINX operated three lines of business: voice and data cable services and installation, security systems integration, and A/V systems. Denver-based Solstice Multimedia provided award-winning integrated electronic systems to commercial and residential customers.

“We are very excited to create the premier A/V firm in the Rocky Mountain Region with this deal. There is strong demand for an A/V integration firm who can create the right client experience wrapped inside of a professional builder’s mentality,” said LINX CEO and owner Erik Isernhagen. “We are a good fit because Solstice and LINX place the same extraordinary value on our relationships with our clients,”

“It is our design, engineering, and installation resources that focus on our principles of reliability, ease of use, and high performance systems that create raving fans,” said Travis Deatherage, Solstice founder and president of the new LINX Multimedia. “Combining these teams will create a market leader in Colorado, and that is very exciting. ”

LINX will continue to operate its other two lines of business — voice and data cable services and installation and security systems integration — under the LINX brand. Only the A/V subsidiary will do business as LINX Multimedia.

Founded in 2003, LINX expanded its business into the audio and visual systems marketplace just four years ago. The new combined LINX Multimedia is projected to generate revenues of $9 million in 2011.

LINX was on the Inc. 5000 fastest growing list in 2008 and 2010. LINX clients include The Children’s Hospital, The Four Seasons Hotel in Denver and Colorado State University’s business school.

Solstice Multimedia was founded in 2002 and has a premier portfolio of projects including clients such as the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Intrado, Celebrity Custom Homes and Hosting.com and Better Dog is having latest reviews on their site.

This deal marks the third acquisition for 8-year-old LINX. Previous acquisitions include the purchase of Denver-based A/V company ANSI in 2007 and Denver voice and data cable installer Sequel Communications in 2008.

LINX will employ about 175 people after this merger and is hiring for new positions this year.
