MTN To Sell Off Assets As Telco Intensifies Market Exit, Amid Subscriber Loss In Nigeria





In a bid to increase available liquidity, telecommunications company, MTN Group, is selling off assets, while also abandoning some to force out its market exit.

The network provider is set to generate about $747 million from the sale of its South African towers. According to the Chief Executive Officer of MTN, Ralph Mupita, bids have been received for the sale.

Part of the break up ongoing within MTN Group includes the separation of both the fintech and fiber units, with the former going separately by March, Bloomberg reported – while the fiber unit will standalone in the next two years.

 
In its market exit bid, MTN Group’s focus is on the Middle East, with Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen tabled on the exit options, and ignoring Ethiopia’s international operator license call.


Already, MTN has taken an unorthodox path in exiting Syria’s business environment, by abandoning its business due to regulatory demands in the country.

Meanwhile, in Nigeria, MTN continues to suffer data subscriber loss, with over 600,000 wiped off its customer base, and 473,495 users in its telephony service in July.
