The acquisition of SkyNet expands the Company’s footprint in Texas and increases its customer base by over 215% to 737 business customers in the Lone Star State.

Based on the quarter ending October 31, 2021 on an annualized basis, the Company expects its operating subsidiaries will generate $18.5 million in annual revenue with the addition of SkyNet.

Arthur L. Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Digerati, commented, “In addition to increased revenue and adding a solid base of customers to our portfolio, the acquisition of SkyNet will expand our service and support capabilities in the growing Texas market.
