The subsea cable sector has seen a remarkable resurgence of strategic activity and capital infusion since the last SubOptic conference, with significant new strategic participants, M&A and pronounced new organic demand from converging industry bandwidth consumers and webcentrics.

This executive Roundtable discussion will feature the recent case studies of companies that have accessed the capital markets in a variety of different ways to find means to satisfy their capital requirements. We will also discuss the strategic winds that are affecting progress for the sector and what the foreshadowing of these executives suggest for the future.
