GO plc has announced the issuance of 3.5% Unsecured Bonds with an aggregate principal amount of up to €60,000,000 redeemable in 2031 and having a nominal value of €100 per bond which shall be issued at par.
Malta’s first quadruple play operator, GO is a leading provider of telecommunications services, offering fixed line and mobile telephony, broadband internet services and digital television. It also provides a range of business-related services that include data networking solutions, cloud services, roaming services and business IP services, amongst others, while it operates a network of retail outlets in Malta and Gozo, with several authorised dealers selling a range of its services. The company’s client base includes more than 500,000 customers.
A pioneer in Malta’s communications industry with a tradition that goes back to 1975 when Telemalta, the country’s first national telecommunications company was established, GO has undergone several international investment rounds, initially by Emirates International Telecommunications (EIT) in 2006 and more recently in 2016, by TT Malta Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tunisie Telecom.
A company of firsts, GO was one of the primary and only local operators to have access to two submarine cables connecting the country to the Web, one of the first communications companies to operate a 24×7 customer call centre and the first to provide 4.5G network.
By leveraging its strategic position in the market and through significant investment, GO has managed to build a high-speed network that today forms the backbone of Malta’s modern communications infrastructure. This was further strengthened when in 2012, the company started its ambitious project of deploying a nationwide, fully optical Fibre-To-The-Home (“FTTH”) network, replacing its copper network.
Through its multi-million-euro investment programmes in its infrastructure and human resources, the company aims to continue on its path to growth and further cement its position as a provider of world-class communications services.
