Digicel Withdraws Plans for Upcoming IPO

Digicel Group, which provides communications services in 31 markets in the Caribbean and South Pacific, withdrew its plans for an upcoming initial public offering.  The company cited inopportune conditions particularly in emerging markets.

Commenting, Denis O’Brien, Chairman, Digicel said: “Given our growth outlook, an IPO for Digicel was optional and predicated on achieving fair value for the company. Recent volatility in equity markets has seen a number of IPOs listing at a discount to their signalled price range and this was a less attractive route for us.”

“Digicel is now at a key juncture in our growth story following a $1.5 billion investment programme over the past three years; we generate strong and growing free cash flow and we have no material debt maturities until 2021. Our growth plans remain unchanged and we remain in a strong position to exploit areas of interest in: Data, Business Solutions, Cable TV and Broadband.”
