FusionStorm Acquires the Adexis Division of Cranel, Inc.

Acquisition Strengthens Sales and Engineering Divisions in FusionStorm's Midwest Region

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - FusionStorm -- "Making Technology Work" -- a leading systems integrator and managed services provider announced today that it has acquired the Adexis division of Cranel, located in Columbus, Ohio.

Adexis is a technology solutions provider that specializes in systems, storage and networking technologies. The firm services hundreds of companies in the Midwest, from smaller enterprises to divisions of Fortune 500 companies.

The acquisition enhances FusionStorm's engineering talent and strengthens the Midwest sales teams across all technology business units. In addition to the systems, storage and networking expertise that Adexis has been providing for years, clients now have access to many more technology solutions from FusionStorm's technology practices, including managed services and managed hosting, data center, virtualization, cloud computing, collaboration, unified communications and business continuity.

John Varel, CEO of FusionStorm, said, "I am very excited about this acquisition. Adexis fits in perfectly with the FusionStorm strong-IT-value model and requires little integration because they are very similar to us already. They add some unique talent to the company and also bring with them some new partnerships and areas of business that we were not currently delivering to our clients."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
