Digicel: Need for a level playing field *

Digicel chairman Denis O'Brien

Regional telecommunications giant Digicel has filed for bankruptcy before the Bermuda courts, but it insists that its day-to-day operations will not be affected by the filing.

The bankruptcy filing involves the appointment of three provisional liquidators from KPMG, the global services company.

Coming days after the company implemented a group-wide salary reduction, the move is being seen as part of Digicel’s attempt to restructure US$1.6 billion of its estimated US$7 billion debt.

The 126 Digicel workers who are being retrenched will receive severance packages together with all terminal benefits due to them.

So said Trade Minister Paula Gopee-Scoon, as she answered an urgent question from Opposition Senator Wade Mark on behalf of the Labour Minister, in the Senate yesterday.
