PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telesphere (www.telesphere.com), a nationwide hosted PBX, VoIP and Cloud Communications business phone and Internet services provider, today announced the closing of additional financing, totaling more than $50 million over the past five years.

“This investment is our most significant yet, given we now have the funding to support our growth through cash flow positive status. This puts Telesphere in an elite group of communications providers,” said Telesphere Chief Executive Officer Clark Peterson. “With this additional capital, we will continue to invest in the company to ensure we are providing award-winning customer service and leading the dramatic shift of businesses moving their voice and data services to the Cloud.”

This news comes on the heels of Telesphere being recognized last month as one of the top 10 fastest growing companies headquartered in Arizona at the annual Ace Awards event. Other winners included GoDaddy, LifeLock and Sprouts Farmers Markets.

Telesphere backers include several premier telecommunications investors including: Rally Capital, Hawkeye Investments and others.
