DSCI to Merge with TelePacific Communications, Creating Premier Nationwide Managed Services Provider

March 2, 2016 — The next chapter of the DSCI story starts today, and it’s all about joining a new family. TelePacific Communications, a leading provider of managed services and business communications solutions, announces a definitive agreement to acquire DSCI. The transaction unites two highly successful regional companies to create the nation’s premier managed services provider, possessing a unique combination of local presence and a coast-to-coast footprint.

Both DSCI and TelePacific offer an evolving suite of network services, paired with a shared DNA of industry-leading personalized customer service. With this merger, DSCI’s unified communications and managed IT services will become key elements in the comprehensive portfolio of continuity, cloud and connectivity solutions TelePacific already brings to its more than 35,000 business customers.  The company focuses on delivering communications solutions to medium and enterprise businesses, particularly those with multi-location needs.

Moving forward, all current DSCI customers will continue to receive the same services they do today, and they will continue to work with the DSCI team. They will also be able to take advantage of TelePacific’s remarkable Ethernet Ecosystem and its deep and broad set of continuity solutions, managed security services, network resources and SSAE-16 datacenters.

DSCI will continue to operate under its own name as a TelePacific company, and it will remain under the leadership of its senior management team, headed by DSCI President & CEO Sean Dandley. TelePacific is committed to maintaining and growing the DSCI team to meet the rapidly evolving needs of enterprise customers, expanding the company’s reach across the East Coast. TelePacific is currently one of the premier service providers for businesses in California, Nevada and Texas.

Mr. Dandley noted, “Since the first meeting with TelePacific, it’s been clear that there is a very strong cultural alignment between our companies. We both believe that the most critical component of our success is an unwavering focus on the customer. TelePacific is impressed with the level of excellence across all of DSCI, and they’re committed to helping us grow and thrive even more.”

“Bringing DSCI’s industry-leading technology and passion for serving customers into TelePacific makes incredible sense,” says Dick Jalkut, President and CEO of TelePacific.  “We’ve both worked to build sterling reputations for customer care and service, married to leading-edge technology that enables businesses to focus on growing their bottom lines instead of managing their infrastructures. We were looking to bring hosted PBX in-house but found something much more valuable.  DSCI is a leader in unified communications and managed IT that help remove the constraints of geography, technology and CAPEX that can hobble business growth.  We’re tremendously excited by the complementary nature of our businesses and shared values.  We fill in each other’s gaps and see enormous opportunities for growth that our combined resources open up on an expanded national stage.”

Closing of the transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals.
