C Spire to acquire Alabama communication firm


The Associated Press


RIDGELAND -- C Spire has announced plans to acquire Callis Communications, which provides cloud-based unified communications as a service for businesses. 


Based in Mobile, Ala., Callis serves customers in key business markets across the Southeast. 


Officials for Ridgeand-based C Spire announced the acquisition in a new release Wednesday. 


C Spire officials say once the acquisition gets regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission, the merger will help it expand its markets and offer comprehensive business solutions for customers. 


C Spire expects final regulatory approval of the merger within the next 60 days. 


Callis started in 1999 as a paging provider. It became a facilities-based competitive local exchange carrier and Internet service provider in 2005 and in 2009 became a cloud-based unified communications company.
