The following provides information on transactions between these two companies.

Transaction 1: On January 5, 2020, Global Xing sold to Quest a part of its network connecting North and South America. In exchange, Quest sold to Global Xing cables connecting Europe and Asia. Global Xing paid $20 million as part of this transaction.

Transaction 2: On January 9, 2020, Global Xing sold to Quest some cables connecting the cities of Toronto and Montreal. These cables were laid along the shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. In exchange, Global Xing received from Quest cables connecting the same two cities, but running through a more inland route farther to the northwest. The rationale for the exchange was to facilitate servicing and maintenance of the cables. [Note: Fibre-optic cables require little maintenance in general.] In this transaction, Global Xing received $1 million.
