Ten-fold expansion in Melita’s data co-location services set to attract foreign investment in cloud computing, online gaming and e-commerce to Malta

Melita has launched a new investment to expand its existing state-of-the-art data co-location services tenfold. The new space created as a result of this investment will also double Malta’s existing data centre capacity.

Details of this latest investment by Malta’s leading telecoms operator were unveiled on Thursday 2nd October during a launch event presided by Dr Chris Cardona, Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Business, held on site at Melita’s new co-location facility in Madliena.

The extension is currently under construction and is expected to go live towards the end of the first quarter in 2015. The new co-location space will be housed in a purpose-built state-of-the-art facility adjacent to Melita’s existing data centre, which was inaugurated a year ago to date and sold out within a few months after launching to market.

The extension to Melita’s data centre forms part of a multi-million Euro investment that the company is rolling out over a five-year period, amounting to a total of Eur60 million.

Minister Cardona praised the company for its commitment towards strengthening the country’s telecommunications infrastructure and commended Melita for its vision to continue developing the country’s capacity in data co-location services. He added that through its investment program, Melita is creating optimum conditions for more foreign companies to relocate their operations to Malta. “Cutting edge data facilities, as these developed by Melita, are particularly attractive for financial services and online gaming operators, who are increasingly finding Malta as a reliable and secure location from where to conduct their business with the necessary peace of mind and state-of-the-art technical facilities” Minister Cardona said.

Melita Group Chief Executive Officer Andrei Torriani said that this latest investment in a new data centre continues to solidify the chain of investments that Melita has already completed to strengthen its telecom infrastructure, including a submarine fibre cable to mainland Europe, broadband speeds of 100 Megabits nationwide, and 250 Megabits in select areas as well as new international data links to the world’s best internet providers in Milan and in Northern Europe, specifically to assist locally based companies in doing business with Scandinavian countries.

“This new investment by Melita is a clear sign that our shareholders are committed to continue developing the company’s and the country’s infrastructure. We see great potential in Malta as a country that continues to present immense opportunity for growth. More co-location space is critical for the country’s success in attracting new foreign companies to Malta but it’s not the only requirement. The country has to offer better quality and very high-end data centre capacity as well. We believe that Melita’s existing and new data centres are Malta’s flagships in this sector,” said Mr Torriani.

“Our investments are enabling Malta to attract more foreign direct investment into the country, to create new smart jobs and to present itself as an ideal location for global businesses to prosper. Over the years Melita has evolved into a highly advanced, converged telecoms company providing a wide portfolio of products and services for consumers and businesses, in line with the master plans and objectives set out by successive Governments,” explained Mr Torriani.

Group Chief Operations Officer, Mr Ludolf Rasterhoff explained Melita’s strategy aimed at supporting all businesses in Malta through a robust telecoms infrastructure and powerful connectivity, irrespective whether the business has Maltese or foreign ownership.

“Strong, powerful and reliable 24/7 connectivity is critical to the success of almost every business organization. As a company, Melita acts as the enabler to conduct business in Malta and beyond. Through our investments, Malta is becoming a hub from where businesses can reach out to their customers around the globe,” said Mr Rasterhoff.

He thanked all the stakeholders involved in the telecoms industry, primarily the Malta Communications Authority for the development and enforcement of a clear operational framework. He also thanked the regulators of the financial services and online gaming sectors, the Malta Financial Services Authority and the Lotteries and Gaming Authority respectively, for ensuring that Malta continues to offer a well-regulated market for companies operating within these sectors.

Contact-Us-Banner-v3Melita would like to inform its customers that its contact centre is currently experiencing higher than usual incoming call traffic volume.

Meanwhile, Melita has taken the necessary measures to increase the number of contact centre representatives manning its telephone lines and is in the process of further increasing staff within other customer contact points.

Melita has also developed a web contact form accessible online via www.melita.com/contactus and customers are invited to follow the easy online process to log any billing and account administration queries. Enquiries will be directed to the respective contact centre representatives who will prioritise issues according to the impact on the customer’s services.

On the 21st July 2014, the Company, Melita PLC (C12715) (“Melita PLC”), Melita Mobile Limited (C35794) (“Melita Mobile Limited”) and Melita Infrastructure Limited (C44734) (“Melita Infrastructure Limited”) entered into a Bond Issuance Facilities Agreement with an international lending consortium pursuant to which Melita PLC received an amount of €98,500,000 for the refinancing of existing bank debt against the issuance by Melita PLC of bond instruments redeemable in 2021. 

Melita Group reorganisation

In accordance with the refinancing agreement, the Melita Group is in the process of streamlining the Group’s corporate structure. The initial phase of the reorganisation process was effectively concluded on 25 July 2014, as a result of which Melita PLC is now a wholly-owned subsidiary undertaking of the Company. In the second phase, Melita PLC, Melita Mobile Limited and Melita Infrastructure Limited are in the process of merging, the result of which will be the consolidation of all of the operating companies of the Melita Group into Melita PLC. The restructured Melita Group will look as follows: 

The salient steps in some more detail 

For the purposes of Chapter 5 of the Listing Rules, the market is hereby informed that the reorganisation process entailed the following steps, all of which received unanimous shareholder and board approval, as applicable:

  1. transfer of 99.9% of issued share capital in Melita PLC from Honey IV Limited (C41816) (“Honey IV Limited”) to the Company, against the issue and allotment by the Company of 138,560,000 fully paid up ordinary shares of a nominal value of €1.00 in favour of Honey IV Limited;

  2. transfer by the Company of its entire shareholding in each of Melita Mobile Limited and Melita Infrastructure Limited to its newly wholly-owned subsidiary undertaking, Melita PLC (step 2 refers), in consideration for the issue and allotment by Melita PLC of 206,064 fully paid up ordinary shares of a nominal value of €0.582343 in favour of the Company;

  3. commencement of the process of merger by acquisition of Melita Mobile Limited and Melita Infrastructure Limited into Melita PLC.

As a result of the reorganisation steps described above, the issued share capital of the Company was increased from €4,676,400 to €143,881,511 divided into 143,881,511 ordinary shares of a nominal value of €1.00 per share, with Honey IV Limited holding 96.3% of the issued share capital of the Company and Superholdco Limited (C50696) (“Superholdco Limited”), the ultimate Maltese holding company of the Melita Group, holding the remaining 3.7%. Also as a result of the reorganisation, previous loans between Melita PLC, Melita Mobile Limited and Melita Infrastructure Limited, and between Superholdco Limited and Melita Mobile Limited, have been extinguished. No change in the ultimate shareholding of the Melita Group shall arise in connection with the reorganisation.

Andrei Torriani, CEO Melita Group, commented:

“Melita is pleased to announce that its refinancing process is coming to a conclusion. The process attracted a very high level of interest from leading international lenders. This is based on the

recognition of Melita Group’s solid performance over the past few years, confidence in its strategy, and the ability to continue to grow in the future. We thank all those who participated in this highly competitive process.

As part of the refinancing process the Melita Group is consolidating and simplifying its corporate structure with Melita Mobile Ltd, Melita Infrastructure Ltd, and Melita PLC being consolidated into one entity – Melita PLC. The resulting and simpler Group structure will enable us to achieve a more financially agile and operationally efficient organization and position us to continue to execute our ambitious growth strategy.”

A European Commission study on broadband internet in Europe based on real-life tests at customers’ premises has once again confirmed Melita as the fastest internet service provider in Malta.

According to this study, Melita customers benefit from an average download speed of over 26 Megabits per second while competing operators via ADSL (telephone line) get less than 12 Megabits per second. Melita customers have more than double the download speed than subscribers of other operators. Similarly Melita’s fibre-powered internet beats other operators on reliability. In these real life tests Melita customers receive all the download speed they are subscribed to, while clients on ADSL get on average, 15% less than the speed they are paying for.

“Melita’s score in this independent report are the result of continuous investment by the company into its broadband infrastructure and quality of service. We are committed and determined to remain Malta’s leading internet services provider by giving more speed and more quality to our customers. Our focus is on giving customers great value for money and the report also confirms that Melita customers get the speeds they are promised, and more. Through the launch of melitaWIFI we are also ensuring that our clients get a seamless internet experience outdoors just like they do at home or office”, said Ludolf Rasterhoff, Chief Operating Officer at Melita.

The study based on hundreds of Maltese households is based on a methodology that uses hardware devices and provides the most accurate and independent results of Internet performance regardless of access to technology and home installation.

This is the second measurement of a study on broadband performance by the European Commission that covers all EU Member States as well as Norway & Iceland, using the same approach. The project is being run by broadband performance testing specialist SamKnows, which has already conducted similar projects in the UK and the US.

Melita is the leading broadband internet provider in Malta and the only operator offering nationwide broadband internet speeds up to 100 Megabits per second. It also operates a direct link to Milan connecting it to global internet backbones such as Level 3 Communications and TeliaSonera International Carrier.

Melita, the fastest internet service provider in Malta, announced that it has connected to leading global internet backbone provider TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC). This enables direct, fast access to TSIC’s customer base across 85 countries. For example, 80% of the world’s top 20 content providers are directly connected, enhancing the Internet experience for Melita’s customers.

“Melita is determined to maintain its position as broadband leader in Malta for residential and business customers alike. We invest heavily in our infrastructure in Malta and are proud to work with TSIC as a leading carrier to deliver best in class connectivity to the rest of the world. Higher speeds and best quality of service are our guiding principles. The link to TeliaSonera International Carrier is welcome news especially for business customers operating in the gaming industry”, commented Ludolf Rasterhoff, COO at Melita.

“End users are demanding more – moving beyond being connected to being immersed in their connectivity. This means closer co-operation with our communication service provider customers, such as Melita, so we can act together to meet rapidly changing demands. We are proud that Melita has chosen TSIC and we look forward to working together in the exciting and challenging times ahead.” added Staffan Göjeryd, Vice President, Data and Infrastructure, TeliaSonera International Carrier.

The new link to TSIC means that Melita will be able to provide even better quality international connections to the Internet. Home users will experience this particularly when using applications like online multi-player games, video streaming and other applications that require ever quicker response from different points around the world. For business customers, the improved connectivity performance, driven by better latency and even lower packet loss, results in a more efficient network experience. This is particularly relevant for businesses which operate their business online, or ‘in the cloud’.

The link to TSIC complements other investments by Melita aimed at enhancing quality of service for its internet customers, especially business customers. Less than two years ago Melita extended its international reach to Milan to enhance international connectivity as well invested in a state-of the art colocation data centre.

Melita Business has launched new mobile tariff plans aimed at the business market which include unlimited calls to all local networks. The innovative plans help business to control their monthly expenses, and the more mobile lines are added the bigger the savings.

“Usage patterns show that most businesses are high mobile users. The success of their business depends on being on the move and available at all time. Bill shocks remain a big concern to business owners. The new Business Circle plans address these concerns. Every line includes unlimited calls to all local networks at very competitive subscription rates, and subscription costs continue to decrease as more lines are added”, commented Claire Galea, Business Marketing Manager at Melita.

Business Circle plans enable businesses to grow without growing their costs exponentially. A first line costs just €50 per month and includes unlimited calls and SMS all local networks. This line also includes free 3GB of mobile internet and 500 minutes of calls to the EU. The innovative part is that every additional line is cheaper. A second line is only €30 per month, a third would be €25 while additional lines would be just €20 per month. All the lines in the group also get to share 20GB of free melitaWIFI per month.

As a special introductory offer any business option for Business Circle plans until end of July will get 3GB of mobile internet and 500 minutes of calls to the EU on every mobile line.

A small company with 4 employees with paid mobile would be paying just €125 per month and all local calls and SMS would be covered. You don’t have to worry if you’re calling your own network or other networks.
