The Orange Dominicana transaction also strengthens Altice’s presence in the Caribbean where it already offers pay-TV, high-speed broadband and mobile services in Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guyana.

Castillo y Castillo´s team was led by partner Praxedes J. Castillo, coordinated by managing partner Tania M. Castillo and supported by experienced associates. The team developed the best purchase structure to deliver business growth.

The transaction represents one of the largest and groundbreaking telecoms operator acquisitions in the Dominican Republic.
