At the same time, Zayo appointed Scott Asbush as channel chief, who is now moving to Master Agent Telarus as the company`s senior vice president of sales. Through the terms of the agreement, Zayo will move from the public sector to the private sector and the Zayo team will continue to operate and implement the company`s strategy from its current headquarters in Colorado, the company said in a statement. The company said the asking price represents a 32 percent premium to the volume-weighted average of $26.44 over the past six months. Zayo shares rose 7.84% to $33.02 on Wednesday afternoon. Zayo was due to release its third-quarter results on Thursday, but the airline instead reported its profits on Wednesday when it announced the buyout deal. Zayo generated revenue of $647.2 million during the period, beating Wall Street`s forecast of $640.2 million.
