Financial terms of the transaction remain undisclosed. The purchase price was comprised of cash consideration plus the assumed liabilities.

The new company will operate under DragonWave-X as a subsidiary of Transform-X. The company will expand its portfolio in the future with new radio solutions that integrate disruptive waveform, antenna and hardware technologies.

“The DragonWave-X acquisition is a crucial part of Transform-X’s strategic goal to acquire and integrate best-in-class 5G+ communications technologies, manufacturers and service companies that will compete and excel in the market for 5G+, small cell densification and RAN solutions to modern data demands,” said Dan Hodges, Transform-X CEO.

Founded in 2017, Tucson, Arizona based Transform-X has acquired rights to several patented technologies which offer dramatic increases in bandwidth and efficiencies for existing wireless and wired networks.

According to its regulatory filing, Transform-X raised US $1.1 million in August 2017. Transform-X is led by Chairman & CEO Dan Hodges. Its board of directors also include John Howell and Mehrdad Nayebi.
