Vigo is delighted to have supported the management team of CityFibre in respect of the £500m recommended cash offer by Connect Infrastructure Bidco Limited, a consortium comprised of Antin Infrastructure Partners UK and West Street Global Infrastructure Partners.
CityFibre is the largest alternative provider of wholesale full fibre infrastructure in the UK, operating fibre networks across 42 cities across the UK. In November 2017, CityFibre announced a partnership with Vodafone, to roll out fibre to the home services to up to five million homes across the UK.
Vigo, a leading TMT sector strategic financial communications adviser, advised CityFibre on financial communications outreach in respect of the transaction, and ongoing financial PR and strategic communications advice.
Jeremy Garcia, Director at Vigo, commented: “Our offering is founded on longevity of relationship and strategic advice that can deliver throughout the lifetime of a business. Our relationship with CityFibre has been a long and successful one, predating their IPO. We are proud that our work with them has covered all the significant milestones in their listed life as well as their IPO, including a number of strategic acquisitions, fundraisings and partnerships, most recently with Vodafone. This has been a period of significant growth for the business and we’re delighted to have supported the CityFibre team as they drive awareness and demand for future proof digital infrastructure.”
The CityFibre account at Vigo is led by Jeremy Garcia and Fiona Henson.
