Lumos Networks and Spirit Communications rebrand as SEGRA
EQT portfolio company Lumos Networks and Spirit Communications today announced the completion of their rebranding as SEGRA. The name, derived from an ancient word meaning “to win,” represents Segra’s focus on providing innovative, industry-leading solutions and services.
EQT Infrastructure III acquired Lumos Networks (“Lumos”) in 2017 with an objective to grow the company’s fiber business both organically and inorganically, and to capitalize on attractive market trends. The later purchase of a majority stake in Spirit Communications (“Spirit”) and subsequent combination of the two companies marked an important step in this ambition. Today, the combined company launched its new brand: Segra.
“Spirit and Lumos were a natural fit given their shared focus on providing innovative, industry-leading fiber-based solutions and services, and we couldn’t be more excited about the outcome. The rebranding to Segra represents the successful combination of the two companies and the creation of one of the largest independent fiber bandwidth companies in the US,” said Jan Vesely, Partner at EQT Partners and Investment Advisor to EQT Infrastructure. “EQT looks forward to continuing to support Segra as it continues to grow, innovate and better serve its customers’ needs.”
