Digicel files for bankruptcy under debt restructuring plan

Wednesday 20 May 2020 | 09:13 CET | News
Caribbean-focused operator Digicel has filed for bankruptcy court reorganisation as part of its plan to reduce debt, cut financing costs and extend debt maturities, reports ABC News, citing company spokesman Pat Walsh. "It is business as usual," said Walsh, adding that the Chapter 15 filing in New York would not affect operations in the 32 markets that the company serves from its headquarters in Jamaica. A hearing in the Chapter 15 bankruptcy case is scheduled for June, added the report.
