PROJECT FOCUS EUROPE DigiPlex, a Nordic leader in innovative, sustainable and secure data centres, has successfully issued a NOK 1.80 billion senior-secured bond to gear up for continued rapid growth. This bond will be one of the largest single issues in NOK to ever be listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and the substantial oversubscription is a clear testament to the credit story of DigiPlex. DigiPlex has issued a senior secured bond of NOK 1.80 billion with maturity in April 2024 at a coupon rate of 3-month NIBOR plus 3.65% p.a. DNB Markets, part of DNB ASA, Norway’s largest financial services group, acted as sole bookrunner for the bond issue. AFRICA Liquid Telecom Kenya, part of the leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, has made telemedicine a reality for thousands of patients at the Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa. Using its high-speed fibre network, Liquid Telecom has connected the main hospital in Mombasa to seven of its outreach centres in the coastal region bringing healthcare closer to the community. The roll-out of services started last August to improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in some of the more rural communities. This includes online consultations and diagnostic services. Issue 03 27
