Servers Australia eyes up two more major acquisitions

New deals could come hot on the heels of the company's acquisition of Oz Servers

Servers Australia is set to notch up at least two more large acquisitions before the end of the year, as it works to integrate the assets of its most recent acquisition, Oz Servers.

Servers Australia provides infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions, which includes custom built dedicated servers, public and private cloud solutions, as well as disaster recovery, back-up, colocation and server management services.  

On 15 September, the IaaS provider revealed it had completed the acquisition of Oz Servers, taking control of the customers and assets of the Brisbane-based cloud, colocation and hosting provider in the process. 

The deal was aimed at helping to boost Servers Australia’s aspirations to become the largest colocation and hosting provider across the country. 

“The assets and client base, combined with an exceptional support and development team from Oz Servers, means that we can continue to grow to become the largest privately and Australian-owned cloud, colocation and dedicated hosting provider in Australia,” Servers Australia CEO, Jared Hirst, said at the time.  

Now, Hirst has revealed plans to follow up the Oz Servers acquisition with at least two more such transactions before the year is out.

While Hirst is remaining tight-lipped about the identity of the potential acquisition targets, they could both be in the hands of Servers Australia before November.

“We have two more happening before the end of the year,” Hirst told ARN. “One has exchanged and should settle before the end of the week, and the other to possibly settle before the end of October.”

According to Hirst, both of the planned acquisitions will be worth at least few million dollars in revenue for Servers Australia.

If Servers Australia does, indeed, complete three fresh acquisitions in quick succession, it will mirror the company’s hat-trick in June last year, when it completed a triple acquisition of hosting companies, taking control of Dedicated Servers, Indigo, and Syncom; three long-term established businesses in the hosting market.

“The assets of the four companies combined together will be really beneficial to our existing customers as well as our new ones,” Hirst said at the time,

“With the expansion it means we can offer more locations, more support staff and a better network than ever before,” he said.

Since its creation in October 2006, Servers Australia has expanded its national presence, with locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, specialising in Microsoft, Cisco, A10 Networks, Fortinet and Ruckus Wireless technologies.
