ATLANTA (August 15, 2018) – Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP (SGR) is pleased to announce the firm served as legal counsel to GigaMonster, one of the nation’s leading fiber-based broadband companies, in its merger with Fibersphere Communications, along with a $45 million investment with Post Road Group. Both transactions closed on June 1, 2018.
Since its formation in 2015, Georgia-based GigaMonster has grown its footprint more than six-fold reaching more than 25 markets nationwide in the multifamily internet provider industry. The $45 million capital investment with Post Road Group provides GigaMonster the financial capability to continue its growth organically and through strategic acquisitions in the ever-changing industry. Through its merger with Oregon-based Fibersphere, the leading fiber-to-the-home internet service provider in the residential market, GigaMonster has expanded its West Coast presence. The combined entity will operate coast to coast to deliver its core offering of one gigabit internet service with no hidden fees, no term commitments, no credit checks, and no data caps.
The SGR Atlanta legal team included Partners Jay Schwartz and Julie Sebastian and Associates Nick Flint and Heiko Gruenwald in the Corporate Practice. Ron Barab, Partner in the Commercial and Bankruptcy Law Practice, also assisted with the finance matters.
