FRISCO, Texas, May 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Republic of Equatorial Guinea (EG), the wealthiest country in Africa on a per capita basis, has entered into a joint venture agreement with GridlineXstreme (GXI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Gridline Communications to implement a high speed, broadband communications network in Equatorial Guinea. After several years of working together to research needs and solutions, EG and GXI have settled on a program that should significantly improve the national communications infrastructure and dramatically fuel the development of current and future economic growth in a variety of market segments, consistent with EG's adopted "Horizon 2020 program." Equatorial Guinea has very significant natural resources and has outlined its goals to broaden its economic base through its Horizon 2020 plan.
The joint venture (JV), Gridline Africa, will be 50% equally owned by both EG and GXI (the Parties). Gridline Africa, an Equatorial Guinea Corporation, will own and operate the broadband communications network including "datacenters, network infrastructure, high speed broadband and other communications services. The agreement states the Parties will "quickly negotiate and enter into the definitive JV in a professional and timely fashion."
Further, the agreement states that, separate from the JV, GXI will provide technical support, training and implementation as necessary to the existing communications companies currently in operation. GXI has already identified the first level of system improvements and upgrades required to improve EG's existing communications infrastructure.
This project will further GXI's reach with the current Cheshire County U.K. project, being executed in partnership with Exstreme Networks Limited "ENL." Gridline is in the final stages of completing an acquisition of ENL.
Gridline President, CEO, Terry Dillon, stated; "While it has been a long path to get here, I am very pleased that we have begun making significant progress for our shareholders/stakeholders. I thank them for the extensive support and patience on this journey. We will continue to vigorously pursue other project opportunities that have been presented to us around the world."
