Financial terms of the proposed transaction were not released. Following the acquisition, Fairpoint is expected to change its name to Garmin Danmark A/S. The company will retain its management, sales, marketing and supporting staff, consisting of approximately 30 people, and will continue operations at its current headquarters located in a suburb of Copenhagen.
