Vecima Named Backup Bidder in Bankruptcy Auction for Casa Systems’ Cable Business

May 30, 2024

VICTORIA, B.C. – (May 30, 2024) – Vecima Networks, Inc. (TSX: VCM) (“Vecima”) today announced that its subsidiary, Vecima Technology Inc., was designated the back-up bidder at an auction to acquire the Cable Business assets (the “Cable Business Assets”) of Casa Systems, Inc., with Vecima’s top bid at USD$44.95 million.  Approval of the sale to the winning bidder is subject to approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware at a hearing next week.

The auction was a competitive day-long process that consisted of multiple rounds of bidding by Vecima and several other interested parties. Vecima conducted extensive due diligence prior to the auction and, based on those insights, made the decision at the end of the auction not to increase its bid any further when the proposed price was no longer reasonably supported by Vecima’s valuation of the assets. “Irrespective of the outcome of the auction, Vecima remains firmly positioned to drive the industry forward to the multi-gigabit networks of the future across both fiber and cable access,” said Sumit Kumar, Vecima President and CEO. “As shown by our third quarter earnings, we continue to deliver exceptional financial performance, quarter after quarter, and make great strides in broadband access and video delivery.”

“Vecima is entering a new era of growth, and we are excited by the market and technology opportunities ahead,” added Mr. Kumar.

Vecima will provide an update regarding the acquisition of the Cable Business Assets and whether the Escrow Release Conditions related to Vecima’s subscription receipt financing (as set out in Vecima’s press release dated May 29, 2024) have been satisfied.
