Commenting on the deal, Piers Bearne of Fusion said, “TowerXchange is deeply embedded in its sector, with a very strong management team. We were looking for the best partner to support the company’s geographical and product expansion, and are delighted that Euromoney are its new owners.”

Rosalind Irving, Euromoney Divisional Director responsible for its telecoms businesses, said: “TowerXchange is an excellent business which serves an increasingly important part of telecoms infrastructure. It is strategic for Euromoney because it is highly complementary to the markets served by TelCap, BroadGroup (in which we invested in March) and Layer123 (acquired in April). We look forward to working with the expert TowerXchange team.”
