Globe receives extra $120M funding from Metrobank

Yesterday, Metrobank and Globe has formally signed an agreement for a $120M term loan that is said to be used for the telco’s capital expenditures which includes the current network modernization.

Earlier this month, Globe has also sealed a $75M term loan deal with The Bank of Tokyo. In statement made Globe said “The term loan facility with Metrobank brings to $195 million the total loans signed by Globe for the first quarter of the year.”

“Proceeds of the loan will be used to finance the company’s capital expenditures, which include the ongoing network modernization and transformation program, and investments in fixed line, international cable facilities, and IT infrastructure,” said the telco.

However, $195-miliion is still not going to be enough considering that the company is looking at a capital expenditures amounting to a total of $450M – $500M for this year. Thus expect Globe to tap on other financial institution for additional funding.

    They’re really dropping the ball on this whole network upgrade event – way overdue, and yet it’s taking longer than expected and they can’t seem to be capable of a seamless, transparent upgrade. And they’re running out of money to boot?

    • Actually, Globe is on time with their first phase of modernization. Dami kasing bobong tao like you na di alam yung schedule pero reklamo ng reklamo.

  3. Sila na lang after that pldt monopolizes everying and there wont be any choice. Just like the fixed line look how bad the service is. Try calling a pldt lineman…. Penitensya na hihingan ka pa ng pera.
