Resilience Capital Partners seals first infrastructure deal


Resilience Capital Partners has made its first deal in the infrastructure sector by acquiring telecommunications company Advanced Communications.

The deal marks the firms’ fifth platform investment from its $222.5m third buyout fund, which closed earlier this year.

Resilience made the investment through its newly-formed entity Aero Communications Inc.

The firm’s co-CEO Steve Rosen said, “We are excited to partner with ACI, an established business partner to some of the leading telephone and cable television systems in the country.

“ACI has a well-established franchise, committed employees and valued expertise, providing a strong foundation from which to grow the business.

“We look forward to working with the firm’s management and employees to help ACI become the very best company it can be.”

Resilience senior vice president Doug Campbell will lead the firm’s investments in its new infrastructure platform.

He added, “ACI is well positioned to take advantage of the vast amount of new infrastructure being built to meet increased consumer demand for greater speed and broader access to communication networks.

“Further, the trend toward bundling of voice, video and data services in the residential and commercial end markets provides ACI with a unique opportunity to strengthen our service partnerships with US-based cable providers as the industry consolidates with fewer, larger service subcontractors such as ACI.”
