Fusion Connect Raises $55 Million in New Investment Round to Accelerate Growth

Fusion Connect, a leading managed security service provider of cloud communications and secure network solutions, announced that it raised $55 Million in preferred equity and refinanced a $60 Million credit facility as part of an overall recapitalization of its balance sheet, providing full funding for its long-term growth strategy, while simultaneously reducing debt by over 80%.

This equity issuance and recapitalization, led by funds affiliated with or managed by Morgan Stanley Private Credit, Ellington Management Group, and Investcorp Credit Management BDC, Inc., was supported by existing stakeholders, including 100% of the company’s creditors. Following receipt of required regulatory approvals, Morgan Stanley Private Credit, via its affiliated or managed funds, will become the majority shareholder in the company. Several members of the Fusion Connect management team also participated in the capital raise, demonstrating substantial support for the company. Fusion Connect worked with Greenhill & Co., LLC. as its financial advisor and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP as its legal counsel.
