Digicel's eventual initial public offering (IPO) plans bode well for the future of the Caribbean regional telecommunications market as additional funds raised in the initial stock offering will allow investment into next-generational networks and help expand the market further. While IPO plans are presently on hold at the eleventh hour, it also demonstrates the saturated nature of the telecoms industry in the Caribbean, with revenue and subscriber growth flattening. A key downside risk is the company's exposure to weak consumer spending trends in its core markets, an issue that could undermine investor confidence further down the line. Haiti and Cuba represent the largest organic growth opportunities in the region, as both are significantly underdeveloped compared to their peers. However, the risks associated with business in these two markets mean that a mobile subscription boom is far from likely.

Cayman Islands has the highest mobile penetration at over 160%, while Cuba's penetration rate will remain below 28%. The number of mobile lines in Cuba reached the 3mn mark in April, up from 2.4mn lines at the start of 2015, according to data published by state-owned telecoms operator Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA). The increase was mainly owing to a promotion, called Si activas ganas 30, wherein new users obtained USD30 in credit for activating a line for the same amount. ETECSA revealed that 300,000 new mobile subscribers signed up in just five days due to the promotion. Digicel Jamaica currently has 1mn smartphone users on its mobile network, which accounts for more than 45% of the operator's overall subscriber base in Jamaica. Haiti and Cuba will both be excellent growth markets over the course of our forecast period.
