Leopard Capital - Press Release | 28 April 2014
Port-au-Prince, Haiti – Leopard Capital announced it has invested USD 2,500,000 to become a minority equity shareholder in Digital Satellite Systems, the owner and operator of one of Haiti’s leading pay television services, “NUtv”. Leopard Capital’s investment in NUtv will be made through Leopard Haiti Fund LP (“LHF”). LHF’s investment will help NUtv enhance its existing network and expand its coverage to many areas in Haiti that cannot currently access a broad range of television programs.
The broader rollout of NUtv in Haiti will support Haiti’s transition from analog to digital television, a step in bridging the digital divide. NUtv uses the latest-generation digital broadcasting standard, DVB-T2, which originated in Europe and is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
