According to the Bank’s website, IDB Invest considers providing a multi-borrower senior secured loan of up to US$30 million to Torrecom and its operating subsidiaries in Latin America. The proposed financing will be used to (i) fund growth CAPEX and associated costs in 2022-2024 in El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Paraguay and Ecuador; and (ii) refinance the existing debt in Guatemala, Mexico and Panama. The proposed financing is expected to be part of a US$70 million co-financing facility funded by Proparco, DEG and IDB Invest.
The objective of the proposed financing is to reduce digital divide in the space of mobile telecom infrastructure by supporting a multi-carrier, shared infrastructure operator. Founded in 2010, Torrecom is one of the independent tower companies in Latin America with a portfolio of 1311 telecom towers under operation in 9 counties as of October 2022. Torrecom has focused on markets in Central America since its inception, becoming a leading tower company in such region. In the next years, Torrecom plans to consolidate its position in South America.
