Hoist Group divest US entity

Following the recent acquisition of Swisscom Hospitality Services (SHS), Hoist Group has decided to divest the US-side of the business to put its full focus on the EMEA region.


The buyer, Single Digits, is a leading global provider of High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) focused on the hospitality sector. Their business fundamentals have led to exceptional growth, profitability and recognition by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the United States for multiple years.

“Our US business has been very successful but the opportunity of the US market is such that a combination makes the most sense. A consolidation via Single Digits is a step in the right direction to create a North American market leader” says Malcolm Lindblom, CEO of Hoist Group.

Single Digits offer a complete guest HSIA solution led by the pioneering Business Access Portal software and also includes components of IP network design, engineering, professional services, ongoing maintenance, networking monitoring, multi-lingual support, revenue reporting and authentication tracking.

“The closing of the deal with Single Digits is a perfect match for Hoist Group, allowing us to find a partner across the Atlantic so that we can jointly grow our business and best serve our global customers. This is the optimal solution for our US customers and staff”– says Alfonso Tasso, former CEO of SHS and deputy CEO Hoist Group
