New fund raising for Altitude Infrastructure

The alternative operator has just announced that it has raised more than €500 million in equity and junior debt from a pension fund to ensure the deployment of a fibre optic network and the recovery of Kosc.

Subject to approval by the regulatory and competition authorities, these two transactions are expected to be finalised in the fourth quarter of 2020. "These two transactions demonstrate our ambition in the fibre market in France and beyond. In a context of sector consolidation, these investments will enable us to pursue our growth strategy with the aim of strengthening our position as the leading independent operator", said David Elfassy, President of Altitude Infrastructures.


The takeover of Kosc should now enable Altitude Infrastructure to develop its addressable customer base in very dense and moderately dense areas, where the bulk of the Wholesale-only operator's business is located, which claims around ten million eligible outlets in these areas.

The alternative infrastructure operator is also planning a massive investment of 100 million euros over five years in Kosc. With this new fund raising, this welcome injection of capital now has all the green lights. As a reminder, the plan proposed by Altitude Infrastructure would enable Kosc to aim for a return to a positive Ebitda and a turnover of between 80 and 100 million euros in 2022.
