The Croatian Telecommunications Agency granted Optima Telekom a thirty-year concession for provision of fixed public telephone services in November 2004, which made the company the second operator of fixed telephony in the Republic of Croatia (after T-Hrvatski Telekom), thereby starting the long-awaited liberalization of the telecommunications market in the country.
Optima Telekom's majority owner is Matija Martić, an entrepreneur whose previous major business was an Avaya dealership. The company was started with significant funding from the Hypo Group, and was at the time headed by Roland Žuvanić, a former government minister of transport. In early 2007, the company received funding from institutional investors in form of 7-year bonds, which started trading at the Zagreb Stock Exchange in February 2007. In late 2007, the company underwent the initial public offering in which 32.27% of the stock was sold to private and institutional investors. The stock started trade at the Zagreb Stock Exchange on January 7, 2008.
