According to The Irish Times, Digicel is planning to purchase IDOM Technologies, an information and communication technology (ICT) business operating across French overseas territories in the West Indies and Indian Ocean. Financial details of the deal – which remains subject to regulatory approval – are unknown at this time.
IDOM provides ICT services to several hundred businesses and public sector customers. The deal also includes IDOM’s 265km of fibre-optic network across Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana and La Reunion.
“Business Solutions is one of the fastest growth areas across all of our markets and this acquisition of IDOM Technologies represents an excellent strategic fit for Digicel and also speaks directly to our intentions to grow and expand our presence in the burgeoning ICT solutions space,” said Colm Delves, chief executive of Digicel.
