/> Airtel May Exit African Telecommunications Scene | Welcome to praizeblog
 

As severe economic crisis hits most parts of Africa, Airtel may decide to exit Africa.

According to Bloomberg, Airtel “ is considering mergers or stake sales at some of its Africa operations as it looks to cut debt and make its biggest overseas acquisition profitable.”

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Mr. Mittal, the chairman of Bharti Airtel, said this process would be completed within a year and
would affect some of Bharti’s businesses in 15 African nations, including Nigeria.
It's been a very bad year for Airtel. They lost $91 million in the quarter of September 2016.

In order to reduce the debt, Airtel is considering selling a stake in Bharti Infratel Ltd., its tower unit. A committee was studying whether the sale
would be a minority stake or control of the tower unit and a decision could be taken in a month.

Is this why Airtel refused to roll out 4G service with other Nigerian Telcos. They were planning to leave. What do we have here From Econet it changed Vmobile Then Celtel, not to forget Zain To Airtel.
