" This convertible loan is a further important element in our Strategic Plan. We are delighted to be working with Inveready. It is not only a leading asset manager in Spain, but also a long-term specialist technology-focused investor. This is particularly relevant because the communications industry is undergoing significant transformation against a backdrop of a more complex and interconnected world.

As announced on 4 February 2020, our unaudited financial results for the year ended 31 December 2019 incorporate four months of trading following the merger in September 2019; they are in line with our expectations and the Group is profitable. Our current financial year has started strongly and having the support of Inveready, which understands the long term potential of our market, is very welcome."
