Flint Telecom Update on Ongoing VoIP Provider Acquisitions

flint_telecom_logo.pngFlint Telecom updated its shareholders and potential investors on the status of previously announced letters of intent to acquire three U.S. based VoIP and telecom service providers.

On March 3, 2011 Flint announced a completed letter of intent to acquire a regional VoIP service provider with annual revenues in excess of $2 million currently growing at 50% per year with positive net income. On April 4, 2011 Flint announced a completed letter of intent to acquire a second service provider recording annual revenues of approximately $1.5 million per year and also generating positive net income. At the time of the announcements it was anticipated that these transactions would close within 60 days. This has not yet occurred due to Flint management's focus on successfully completing its Registration Statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which went effective on June 10, 2011. On June 13, 2011, Flint announced an additional letter of intent to acquire the assets of a third telecom service provider with current annual revenues of $3 million and 10% net income. All of the above providers have existing customers, sustained revenue streams and positive net income from delivering next generation VoIP and data services to small and medium sized enterprises within the United States. With its first Form S-1 registration process now completed, management will refocus on completing these acquisitions as soon as possible and continue to expand the pipeline of additional acquisitions planned for 2011.

Microsoft's Skype Acquisition

Microsoft agreed to buy Internet phone company Technologies for $8.5 billion in cash. That's a lot of money for a firm whose business has yet to become profitable, especially if compared to the $2.6 billion (in cash and stock) that the selling side - Silver Lake et al - paid eBay for 65% of it in 2009, and the $5-$6 billion the owners had sought from other potential suitors including Google, Cisco Systems, and Facebook. The deal is subject to regulatory approval.

Microsoft plans to integrate Skype’s functions to its Xbox and Kinect game consoles, outlook email program, and Windows smartphones but will continue to support it on other software platforms.
