Cloud Equity Group Announces Portfolio Company Add-On Acquisition
ComfortHost purchases all assets of Advantagecom Networks in a strategic deal to expand its global footprint
Cloud Equity Group, a New York-based private equity investment manager focused on leveraged buyouts of tech-enabled business service providers, and its portfolio company ComfortHost recently acquired the assets of Adantagecom Networks Inc. (“Advantagecom”) in a strategic deal to expand ComfortHost’s global hosting footprint. Advantagecom will maintain its own brand and will continue to be supported by the existing team.
The acquisition of Advantagecom is consistent with ComfortHost’s strategy of providing a diversified hosting service offering across multiple geographical locations worldwide. ComfortHost is interested in customer service-focused hosting providers that can strategically help it to expand into new markets. Originally founded in 1995, Advantagecom Networks is based in Washington and operates out of its custom-built local data center facility to provide a variety of cloud, virtual private server, and web hosting services.

With data centers located across the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union, the Advantagecom acquisition will expand ComfortHost’s global footprint into the Northwest region of the United States. This acquisition also adds new technology, such as hardware-based virtualized cloud infrastructure, to ComfortHost’s existing service offerings.

I am pleased that Cloud Equity Group and their affiliated companies can continue to provide great service to the customer base we built and expand the service available to these customers,” said Andrew Kinney, Chief Technology Officer and President of Advantagecom Networks.
