Omnicity Corp (OTCBB: OMCY) (the "Company" or "Omnicity") is pleased to announce that, effective on February 16, 2009, the Company has now completed its previously announced (December 29, 2008) Agreement and Plan of Merger, as entered into among the Company, Omnicity Acquisition Co. and Omnicity Incorporated and pursuant to which the Company has now acquired from the shareholders of Omnicity Incorporated all of the issued and outstanding shares and warrants of Omnicity Incorporated in consideration of, among other matters, the issuance from treasury by the Company of an aggregate of 23,000,000 restricted common shares.
Omnicity, Corp. -- www.omnicitycorp.com -- provides broadband access, including advanced services of voice video and data, in un-served and underserved small and rural markets in the Midwestern United States and is planning to be the premier consolidator of rural market broadband nationwide. Omnicity's strategy is to provide a total broadband solution and be the leading rural wireless internet service provider (WISP) in the United States.
Omnicity's value proposition is providing internet access in rural America at significantly lower cost than wire or fiber optics. In the future Omnicity will also provide other value-added services for its customers including telecommunication (VOIP) and video on demand.
Since its inception in 2003, Omnicity has grown rapidly to the largest rural ISP in the Midwest through acquisitions and organic growth. Management plans to accelerate its rapid growth through ongoing acquisitions of smaller regional service providers and continued organic growth.
Omnicity has proven its business model to be highly successful on a regional basis and is planning to grow nationally through a strategic alliance with the nation-wide Rural Electric Membership Cooperatives (REMCs) and regional governments. In addition to extending its reach geographically, Omnicity plans to expand its offering to a 'bundled' total broadband solution. The combination of these two strategies provides an opportunity for increasing subscribers and increasing revenues per subscriber for the foreseeable future. Management estimates the market for rural and small market service to be approximately 40 million homes.
Omnicity's business is highly scalable and uses industry standard equipment. This allows for efficient use of capital and low overhead. The use of a centralized billing and management system further improves the operating efficiencies of the consolidated businesses.
Omnicity has an experienced management team with extensive wireless broadband/ISP expertise as well as the expertise to consolidate large numbers of businesses through its roll-up strategy.
