BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that it has secured 12 follow-on customers on its Sacramento to Salt Lake City route. Zayo began construction on the route in early 2015 after securing the anchor tenant. The 970-mile route was completed on schedule in the fourth quarter 2015 and approximately 25 percent under budget.
The follow-on sales are to three long haul dark fiber and nine wavelengths customers, including major carriers, internet and content companies. In aggregate, the combined sales are generating a strong return, with a cash flow yield of approximately 29 percent.
