Shareholder OK of Enventis name sought

MANKATO — HickoryTech Corp. has been operating under its new Enventis name since last October and now it’s seeking shareholder approval to officially and legally change the corporate name to Enventis.

The corporate name change is the last step in the Mankato-based company’s move to a unified brand for its telecom markets in southern Minnesota and northwest Iowa.

The vote will be tallied at the company’s annual meeting on May 6 and upon a successful vote, the company’s stock would start trading under Enventis, NASDAQ ticker symbol ENVE.

“Aligning our corporate name with Enventis, the brand used to serve thousands of customers across the upper Midwest, allows us to gain full recognition as a public company and as a leading business and broadband service provider.

Along with our brand, the company has transformed from a local telephone company into a leading, regional communications provider focused on growing and expanding our business and broadband services,” John Finke, president and CEO, said in a statement.
