KKR To Funnel $400 Million To Malaysia Firm OMS Group
KKR, a leading global investment firm and the parent company of OMS Group (or the "Company"), a leading telecom infrastructure company and provider of subsea cable services, announced the signing of definitive agreements under which KKR will invest $400 million in a customized solution for OMS Group. This is KKR's latest digital infrastructure investment in Southeast Asia, demonstrating the firm's belief in the significance of digitalisation in the region's developing internet economy.
Founded in 1988, OMS Group is a neutral provider of integrated solutions for subsea telecommunications cable services, including installation and maintenance projects. The Company maintains a more-than-three-decades track record of providing mission-critical services to clients including major subsea equipment providers, large-scale cloud service providers, and telecom companies, and is internationally accredited for its quality management system, as per economic times.
Mr Projesh Banerjea, Director, Infrastructure at KKR, said, “OMS Group has established itself as a market leader with a longstanding track record of success and growth in Southeast Asia. As demand for greater connectivity across the region continues to grow, we are delighted to work closely with Datuk Lim, Mr Ronnie Lim, and the highly rated OMS Group team to meet this critical need. Our tailored solution for OMS Group also creates strong adjacencies with KKR’s recent digital infrastructure investments and builds on long-term secular tailwinds in the region, including increased data consumption, enterprise cloud needs, a focus on digitalisation by governments, and a booming digital economy. We look forward to sharing our global network and infrastructure expertise to take OMS Group to its next stage of growth."
