Virgin Mobile Announces $39-Million Acquisition of Helio

Date: 7/1/2008 3:28:30 PM

Prepaid cell phone carrier, Virgin Mobile USA, revealed on Friday that it would purchase struggling rival, Helio, in an all-stock deal worth $39 million.

Helio, which was formed in May 2006 as a joint venture between EarthLink and SK Telecom, and primarily targets younger users, has a customer base of about 170,000, down from almost 200,000 at the beginning of 2008.

Virgin will continue to offer Helio’s advanced mobile data services and contract-based plans, but will likely phase out the Helio brand name, according to Virgin Mobile CEO, Daniel H. Schulman.
