LITTLE ROCK, AR — Windstream, a provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, announced that it has sold the legacy EarthLink consumer internet business.

Windstream acquired the business in its merger with EarthLink in February 2017. Trive Capital, a Dallas-based private equity firm, purchased the business for $330 million in cash.

“This transaction enables us to divest a non-core segment and focus exclusively on our two largest business units. In addition, it improves our credit profile and metrics in 2019 and beyond,” said Tony Thomas, president and CEO of Windstream.

The legacy EarthLink consumer internet business offers internet access, online back-up, managed web design, web hosting and various email services to over 600,000 customers throughout the United States.
