IP4B acquires CDS Communications Group


IP4B, a leading full-service provider of IP telephony and unified communications, announces that it has entered into an agreement with CDS Communications Group (hereafter “CDS”) to acquire its assets.

This transaction has three major components:

  1. IP4B acquires the entire customer base of CDS and takes over the management and operation of the technologies;
  2. IP4B hires key resources from CDS;
  3. IP4B obtains certain essential assets, including high-performance business communications solutions.

This transaction allows IP4B to pursue its growth strategy and position itself as a key leader in the Quebec IP telephony and unified communications market.

The addition of CDS to the IP4B team will position the company as the leader in innovative telecommunications solutions for the senior living and hospitality markets. Over the years, CDS has built a solid reputation in these vertical markets with innovative solutions that meet the expectations of local property managers. This integration with IP4B will allow CDS to strengthen its R&D efforts to pursue even more advanced solutions.

“The telecommunications market is undergoing major changes, and technologies are evolving at a rapid pace. To take advantage of the business agility we have, we must exploit the economies of scale and synergies offered by merging companies,” said Steve Foisy, President of IP4B. “It is with this in mind that we are pleased to welcome the clients from CDS and to integrate the resources that will be joining us into our team,” adds Mr. Foisy.

“Steve and I have known each other for so many years and have done business together on many levels. This alliance is a natural fit for CDS and our customers,” said Pierre Couture, President of CDS Communications Group. “Thanks to this association, we will accelerate the development of new and innovative solutions for our clients in the seniors’ residence and hotel markets,” concluded Mr. Couture.
