Project description

The EBRD is providing a new EUR 10 million loan to Digital Cable Systems SA (“DCS”), the fourth largest Cable TV (“CATV”) operator in Romania to finance capital expenditure, to help the company extend and upgrade its cable TV and Broadband networks, as well as increase the penetration of digital and internet services within its footprint. The company is also planning to launch new services for its customers, in line with the latest market developments, as part of the current development strategy.

The financing follows a previous EBRD loan which supported the company’s development strategy, including regional expansion and digitisation of analogue networks.

Transition impact

The main transition impacts of this operation are expected to come from (i) increased competition outside of the large urban areas where DCS’ presence will improve the quality of network and services as well as the product offering through the present Triple-play services (CATV, internet, telephony); and (ii) market expansion as current penetration rates, especially in the fixed broadband Internet segment, are low in Romania compared to more developed EU countries, in particular in the rural areas.

The client

DCS, established in 2005 through the merger of several cable TV operators, currently operates Triple Play networks in more than 2, 800 localities, in 29 out of the 41 counties of Romania. The company is controlled by the private equity fund PineBridge New Europe Partners, in which the EBRD is a limited partner.

EBRD finance

Up to EUR 10 million senior long term debt financing.

Total project cost

Up to EUR 28 million of which a large part will come from the internally generated cash.
