Dycom To Acquire Certain Assets Of The Wireless Network Deployment And Wireline Businesses Of Goodman Networks

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) and Goodman Networks Incorporated ("Goodman") announced today that they have entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Dycom will acquire from Goodman certain assets and related liabilities used in Goodman's current wireless network deployment and wireline businesses for approximately $107.5 million in cash.

The acquired businesses provide wireless construction services in Texas, Georgia, Southern California and other markets, and are currently expected to produce revenues ranging from $150 million to $165 million over the next twelve months. As a percentage of revenue of the acquired business, Dycom expects earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") to approximate Dycom's current percentage in the 2018 fiscal year. Goodman expects the transaction to enable the company to shift its strategic focus towards its field services and professional services business segments while continuing to de-leverage and strengthen its financial position.

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and certain other closing conditions. Subject to the satisfaction of these conditions, the acquisition is expected to be completed by June 30, 2016.

The purchase price of approximately $107.5 million, which is subject to adjustments for working capital and other specified items, will be financed through a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under Dycom's senior secured credit facility.
