Telkom’s $63m African expansion

first_img12 November 2008South African telecommunications company Telkom is to acquire the whole of Mweb Africa and 75% of Mweb Namibia from Multichoice Africa and MIH Holdings – both Naspers group companies – respectively, for US$63-million (about R646.8-million), as part of its strategy to expand outside South Africa.Telkom CEO Reuben September said the transaction would give further impetus to the company’s strategy of becoming a pan-African integrated service provider.“Expanding beyond the borders of South Africa provides Telkom with an opportunity to become less dependent on domestic revenue streams,” September said in a statement this week.Mweb AfricaMweb Africa is an internet service provider in sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa, and also provides network access services in some countries. It is headquartered in Mauritius, with operations in Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe, an agency arrangement in Botswana, and distributors in 26 sub-Saharan countries.Although the company’s operations are largely focused on corporate customers, Mweb Africa’s predominantly satellite-based internet access offerings allows the company to reach a wide range of customers, many of whom are not reached by traditional fixed-line infrastructure.African expansionIn February last year, Telkom acquired Africa Online, an internet service provider active in Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe, for £10.32-million.In May the same year, Telkom acquired 75% of Nigerian-based Multi-Links Telecommunications for $280-million, giving the company a strong foothold in the Nigerian telecoms market, as well as providing it with a springboard for expansion into West Africa.“This acquisition, together with Telkom’s investment in Africa Online, is expected to increase the value proposition of our product and service offerings to all customer segments in Sub-Saharan Africa,” September said.“Telkom’s position as partner of choice for connectivity and related services in Africa is expected to be strengthened.”The transaction is subject to several conditions, including regulatory approvals being obtained in certain African jurisdictions.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

OSU lost, 6-2.Credit: Matthew Homan / Lantern photographerComing off the wrong side of a two-game sweep at the hands of Miami (Ohio) this weekend, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team is looking to bounce back as it travels to Bowling Green State University for a one-game bout.Despite giving up a combined 12 goals in their two losses against the Redhawks in coach Steve Rohlik’s first series at the helm of the team, the Buckeyes (0-2-0) are optimistic about their matchup with the Falcons (0-1-1).Junior forward Max McCormick said Bowling Green and OSU are “hard-nosed teams,” so the game is going to be a battle.“We didn’t let (being swept by Miami) get us down,” McCormick said. “We’re getting better every day and that’s our mindset, so we’re staying positive and we’re going into Bowling Green to get a win.”Despite the positive attitude, senior forward Alex Szczechura said playing away from Columbus will pose a challenge the team must overcome.“They’ve always been a hardworking team,” Szczechura said. “In their home rink, they’re a tough team to play. So coming into (Tuesday’s) game, we really just want to work hard and keep things simple, keep battling on the ice.”McCormick noted that penalties and maintaining possession were two issues the Buckeyes faced against Miami, among other things.“We really need to take care of the puck,” he said. “We worked on some things in the (defensive zone) and the neutral zone this week in practice and we brushed up on some things in the power play.”OSU is 12-1-3 against the Falcons in the teams’ last 16 meetings.The Buckeyes are slated to take on the Falcons Tuesday in Bowling Green, Ohio with the puck set to drop at 7:07 p.m. read more
