Deutche Telekom purchases Strato Hosting

The WHIR reports that Deutche Telekom is buying European hoster Strato for EUR275 million.  This works out to just over $400 million and, based on published information, approximately 3.1x revenue and 8.6x EBITDA. (These multiples are based on published reports of Strato's results for the first 9 months of 2009 annualized.) 

Please keep in mind that we do not know if there was any debt assumed by DT or if there were any other assets included as a part of the deal. Either of which would distort the multiples from what is shown above.
