FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(“Globo” or “the Group”)
High Yield Bond Investor Meetings
Globo plc (LSE-AIM: GBO / OTCQX: GOBPY), the international provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), mobile solutions and software as a service (SaaS), announces that it will be conducting a series of investor meetings in the US and UK commencing on 19 June 2015 in relation to a potential issue of senior secured high yield notes (the ‘Notes’).
Upon successful completion of the offer the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes will primarily be used to fund further acquisitions that support the Group’s international expansion strategy in its key growth markets. Additionally, proceeds will be used to repay existing indebtedness and for general corporate purposes.
Globo’s CEO, Costis Papadimitrakopoulos commented:
“Following on our US expansion and the successful acquisitions of both Notify Technologies Inc. and the services operations of Sourcebits Inc., we are looking to accelerate our expansion through additional strategic acquisitions in both the US and Europe. Our strong financial performance underpins our ability to access the high yield debt market for future growth and acquisitions without diluting our shareholders. We feel that this is the right time to accelerate our growth and execution capabilities as we continue to successfully build a leadership position in the Mobile Enterprise space.”
