The deal significantly expands the coverage and capabilities of both companies, according to Bob Imbriani, vice president of international operations with AGS. S-Net operates an Asian network of more than 23 offices in 13 countries; AGS has more than 50 U.S. branch locations and 75 additional distribution and service centers.
