Aliso Viejo, California. - September 29, 2009
Alentus Corporation (Pinksheets:ALNS - News), a global provider of website hosting, dedicated servers, and managed hosting, today announced that it has retained the services of American Capital Ventures (ACV), a leading provider of comprehensive investor relations services to the small cap community.
Alentus has maintained continuous market share in B2B website hosting, dedicated servers, and other managed services such as VoIP and colocation, since 1997. This year Alentus completed major product and infrastructure consolidations to form a portfolio of hosting and hosting infrastructure products from SMB telephone and hosting packages to enterprise cloud grids.
"Alentus now has a global infrastructure across two continents and three countries. With an interconnected network between the United Kingdom and the United States and a wealth of diverse datacenter space, we are in a strategic position to leverage new services such as upcoming cloud platforms and evolve existing products like unmetered hosting." Added Adam LaFountain, VP of Infrastructure, "I believe our technical capabilities put us in a position that our competition would need significant management, time, and capital to reach."
The Company is optimistic in light of recent improvements in the public markets to resume its core approach to industry acquisitions. Over the past 24 months Alentus has acquired four companies which have provided a key customer base and technology set.
William King, CEO, commented, "Retaining American Capital Ventures will allow us to expand our communications deep into the investment community. Our goal is to inform current and prospective investors of our financial prospects and the value offered by our business model." Mr. King continued, "We are relied on by tens of thousands of companies to deliver their web applications, e-commerce, and digital assets. This is a powerful message we need to convey to current and potential investors and American Capital Ventures has a proven track record in assisting small cap companies in getting their message out."
