RELEVANT IS NOT WHO WE ARE. IS WHERE WE GO!
The purpose is four-fold and fully interrelated:
- INDICTRADER®’s Brokerage Layer: Service is basically brokerage to traders who are keen at the intra-day ultra-low-latency-direct-market-access (ULLDMA), who wish to spread between the 9 principal stock exchanges, the region has to offer. Types of direct services to exchanges, as e.g. liquidity supply, are considered as well.
- VDLBAGRUPPE®’s Telecom Layer: Providing infrastructure to telecom populations along the corridor. The Telecom infrastructure supplies services of carrier Ethernet, dedicated internet access, legacy corporate data, broadband IP-VPN, switched access and mobile services.
- To prove that low-altitude microwave can transmit more distant, faster and safer than fiber infrastructure.
- To cooperate at setting foundations for the Europe, Eurasia and Asia unified development and empowerment strategy.
Infrastructure is 11,000 km long and crosses 27 different administrative territories within countries of France, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Belarus, Russian Federation, Kazakhstan and China.
VDLBAGRUPPE® and INDICTRADER® will bind together 9 relevant financial trade exchange markets, by using an ultra-low latency message transmission and processing infrastructure, which spans over 6 different time zones and roughly 420 cities, towns, villages and settlements, with a current population of not less than 217 million. Amount of transmission sites of sizes 150′-220′ are in the range of 270 units and based at altitudes between 85 to 2,500 meters above sea level.
VDLBAGRUPPE® is leading the construction and future operations of the infrastructure’s Telecom Layer. INDICTRADER® is leading the construction and future operations of the infrastructure’s Brokerage Layer.
Infrastructure investment is in the vicinity of €820 million and has a time completion schedule of 7 years. Net yearly earning, past a market entry phase of 10 years, will be in the vicinity of €250 million. This includes earnings derived from the Telecom Layer and from the Brokerage Layer. After 15 years operations, net yearly earnings are expected to be as high as €500 million.
Private stockholders (public stock) will be yielded a yearly dividend of 7.5% during the construction and market entry phases. After business settlement, public stock will yield a yearly dividend of 15% or higher.
Current status of VDLBAGRUPPE® and INDICTRADER® focus is: Designing and constructing a 1:1 scale prototype.
This prototype phase encompasses a thorough technological research and preliminary engineering, which to be led by the VDLBAGRUPPE®’s and INDICTRADER®’s partnered Technological Centers. Testing has the purpose of defining enhanced features of latency and stability, solar-, atmosphere-, traffic congestion, structures- and equipment behavior factors, actual broad-band contracts accessible, data and signal processing algorithms’ performance, simulating contingencies of all sorts and redundancy, etc.
Together with the prototype, there will be a road-show series for all prospective stakeholders, relevant government officers, prospective clients and suppliers. Estimated investment for the prototype and road-show is about €10.1 million and time completion schedule is 1.5 years.
In addition to the latter, a survey of political, regulatory and market entry strategies along the 27 administrative territories is mandatory (preliminary agreements included), inclusive a refining of the investment and revenue forecasts. Estimated investment for the survey and the business model refinement is €5.6 million and time completion schedule is about 1 year.
