Master Agent Signals Continued Confidence in Fusion as Company Prepares for Emergence from Chapter 11

HERMOSA BEACH, California — November 4, 2019 — Fusion, a leading provider of cloud services, announced today that Sandler Partners, America's Fastest Growing Distributor of Connectivity and Cloud Services, has signed Fusion's new Partner Agreement. Named by Inc. Magazine as one of America's fastest growing private companies for ten consecutive years, Sandler Partners is recognized across the industry for delivering best-in-class solutions that solve technology complexity for enterprises of all sizes.

The new agreement reinforces the relationship between the two organizations and provides Sandler Partners with a greater sense of confidence in Fusion's anticipated emergence from its Chapter 11 process, which is on schedule for the end of the year. The new Agreement, which standardizes terms across legacy Fusion contracts, makes it easier for Sandler Partners' 7000 + expert sales partners to do business with Fusion. It also increases certain commission payments on Fusion's fully integrated single-source solutions, including UCaaS, SD-WAN, Managed Network Services and Security.

"Fusion is focused on positioning the company for long-term success and enabling the company to be an even better partner, and we continue to prioritize delivering new ways for us to compete, sell and grow together. Sandler Partners has been tremendously supportive throughout our Chapter 11 process, and we're grateful for their loyalty, confidence and trust," said Michael Fair, SVP of Fusion's Channel and Alliances.

"We're delighted that we remain on track to emerge before the end of this year and have great plans for an exciting 2020. Soon after the new year, we'll be rolling out an energized Channel Partner Program that will offer enhanced service and support along with increased incentives for sales of our strategic, award-winning solutions," Michael continued.

"Our ongoing commitment to our expanding network of selling agents, VARs and MSPs is to fuel their success by increasing revenue opportunities with a powerful product portfolio that provides strong legal protection for their hard-earned dollars. Fusion has been a strong partner in delivering compelling solutions backed by service excellence," said Alan Sandler, Founder and Managing Partner of Sandler Partner.
