AIM Group invests $6.4 million in new venture
Mobile-based Angel Investor Management Group (AIM) joined with Fidelis Capital and Bonaventure Capital to complete an $8.9 million equity purchase in Deep Fiber Solutions of Atlanta, according to a news release. Leading the round with $6.4 million, this represents AIM Group’s largest investment to date.
Deep Fiber Solutions is a cable engineering and construction company with patented technology to eject the core of a coaxial cable and install a fiber optic cable replacement into the conduit created by the coaxial removal. This solution comes at a substantially lower cost than traditional boring and trenching, and is completed quickly by industry standards.
“This transaction will provide Deep Fiber Solutions with the expansion capital necessary to address the market demand for our unique core ejection/fiber optic installation service. Additionally, we are excited to have AIM Group, Fidelis and Bonaventure Fund as partners moving forward,” Mark Davis, CEO of Deep Fiber Solutions, said.
“We were immediately blown away by the technology. Having been involved in constructing some of the early fiber optic networks in the 1980s, I fully appreciated the elegant solution that the Deep Fiber team created to enable old coaxial networks to be upgraded to fiber optic networks without all of the hassles of trenching and boring,” Jim Corman, managing partner of AIM Group, said. The funding will allow Deep Fiber Solutions to continue its work delivering solutions to the cable industry.
AIM Group’s focus is on providing capital to early-stage and expansion-stage technology companies. It has completed almost 50 funding transactions since 2011, investing in 28 companies. Capital amounts have ranged from $500,000 to $6.4 million per round. The investment in Deep Fiber Solutions reflects a maturation of the investment strategy implemented by AIM Group managing partners Clay and Jim Corman.
