The acquisition of OmniAccess by the Marlink Group is now complete. Terms were not disclosed for the acquisition, which was announced in November 2017. A statement said that OmniAccess will keep its brand and lead the superyacht and “boutique cruise” segment of Marlink going forward. The Marlink Group currently is a leading maritime VSAT company, with more than 5,000 vessels under contract.
Marlink also recently acquired LiveWire Connections in December 2017. The Marlink Group will have annual sales of about US$500m, and employ up to 1,000 experts. OmniAccess has a staff of 70 specialists. It operates a global proprietary VSAT network with more than 24 satellite-beams in both C- and Ku-band, uplinked from six Teleport locations in Spain, Germany, Hawaii, Australia and the USA.
“Both OmniAccess and Livewire Connections contribute to Marlink’s commitment to meeting the significant demand for cutting-edge broadband satellite services and on-board IT solutions in the superyacht sector,” said a statement from the company.
