GO's Chairman Deepak Padmanabhan received the award during a ceremony held at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia attended by H.E. Presi- dent Nicos Anastasiades. The CIPA International Invest- ment Awards, organised togeth- er with leading Cypriot business publication Gold Magazine, honour international investors, individuals and companies for their substantial contribution to the Cypriot economy. Since 2012, a total of 36 CIPA International Investment Awards have been presented to organisations that have invested directly in Cyprus and created a value-added element for the economy, or established opera- tions and provided employment in Cyprus, or provided services to international investors and helped to attract other foreign investors to Cyprus. GO's investment in Cyprus began in 2014 with the acqui- sition of 25 per cent of the is- sued share capital of Cablenet, together with the provision of a €12,000,000 loan which was convertible into equity and, moreover, an option to acquire majority control should it wish to do so. In January 2016, GO's Board agreed to proceed with convert- ing the loan to equity and to also exercise the option to acquire majority control. Padmanabhan said: "GO's in- vestment in Cablenet is a win- win opening up opportunities to share knowledge and devel- op business opportunities and growth across our Group.
