Halo is the world’s leading third-party optical transceivers business, serving blue-chip customers from its supply facilities and sales offices in the US, Europe and Asia. Operating under the Halo umbrella will allow ProLabs and AddOn to retain their existing brands while benefitting from synergies gained through the alliance. The combined group employs approximately 150 people. Halo is unique in the $6bn optical transceivers market given its constituent business’ complementary customer bases, product offerings and geographic focus.
The Inflexion difference
Halo is bolstering its technical capability and accelerating its international expansion utilising Inflexion’s track record of acquisitive growth and global presence to scale in a fragmented market. Halo’s management is drawing on Inflexion’s rich TMT experience, with recent relevant investments including My Policy, K2 Partnering Solutions, Outdoor Plus and Group IMD. The firm is also benefitting from support from Inflexion’s in-country experts particularly in India where a number of potential client introductions have been made. A new local marketing team has also been put in place at the suggestion of Inflexion’s India expert.
Inflexion has done a great job in putting together ProLabs and AddOn to create a global market leading business. We are now looking to scale the business further, working closely with Inflexion’s international colleagues, particularly in Asia, to expand our business globally. I am confident that Inflexion’s support can help us to cement our global market leadership position with a diverse customer base across the telecoms carrier and reseller markets.
