DIF Capital Partners Buys Majority Stake in Valley Fiber

Davies acted for DIF Capital Partners in its majority investment in Valley Fiber Ltd., a rapidly growing Manitoba-based fiber-optics developer. Valley Fiber aims to connect more than 15,000 homes and businesses in rural Manitoba to high-speed networks over the next few years.
