December 22, 2017 | 3 Comments

The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda has received notification of a proposed change of control of TeleBermuda International Limited [TBI], with all the shares to be purchased by East End Group and Omnium Bermuda.

The RAB decision said, “The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda has received notification of a proposed change of control with respect to TeleBermuda International Limited [“TBI”] whereby all of the issued shares will be purchased by East End Group Ltd [“EEG”] and Omnium Bermuda Limited [“OBL”] from Javelin Connections Bermuda Limited [the “Proposed Transaction”].

“Pursuant to section 18[6] and 18[7] of the Electronic Communications Act 2011, section 87[3] of the Regulatory Authority Act 2011 and section 20 of TBI’s Integrated Communications Operating Licence [“ICOL”], the Authority [acting with the written consent of the Minister] hereby issues this Final Decision and Order giving authorization for the Proposed Transaction, subject to the following conditions:

  • 1. In the event that any material statement made to the Authority by TBI, EEG, OBL or Javelin is found to be false or untrue, the Authority shall be at liberty to revoke TBI’s ICOL with immediate effect.
  • 2. TBI shall be fully solvent [both on a cash flow basis and on a balance sheet basis] within 28 days of completion of the purchase of TBI’s shares by EEG and OBL.
  • 3. In the event that TBI is or becomes insolvent [whether on a cash flow basis or on a balance sheet basis] at any time after 28 days of completion of the purchase of TBI’s shares by EEG and OBL, the Authority shall be at liberty to revoke TBI’s ICOL with immediate effect, and take such other enforcement action as the Authority may consider appropriate.
  • 4. TBI, EEG and OBL shall immediately notify the Authority immediately of any fact or event likely to affect materially TBI’s ability to comply with any condition of its ICOL.
  • 5. TBI, EEG and OBL shall immediately notify the Authority immediately of any insolvencyrelated fact or event in respect of TBI or any affiliate [including, but not limited to, any preparatory steps being taken that might lead to an insolvency-related event].
  • 6. TBI shall continue to comply fully with all other obligations under its ICOL, the Regulatory Authority Act 2011, the Electronic Communications Act 2011, and any regulations made thereunder.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Authority has conducted a thorough assessment of the Proposed Transaction in line with the criteria set out in section 87[10] of the Regulatory Authority Act 2011, and, subject to TBI’s compliance with the conditions set out above, the Authority is satisfied that the Proposed Transaction will not create an entity with a dominant position, nor substantially lessen competition in any relevant market, nor harm the public interest.

“EEG and OBL have represented that they do not intend to make any of TBI’s staff redundant. The Authority has considered this representation in its assessment of the Proposed Transaction.”
