MTN Nigeria Communications : to Invest Fresh N600 Billion As Subscribers Decline By 7.6 Million

08/02/2021 | 12:06pm EDT

MTN Nigeria Communications Plc (MTN Nigeria) has said it will invest fresh N600 billion to expand its network across the country in the next three years.

This is even as the telecom operator's mobile subscribers declined by 7.6 million to 68.9m impacted by the regulatory restrictions on new SIM sales and activations for almost five months.

The South African telecom company announced these in its unaudited results for the half-year ended 30 June 2021, released at the weekend.

It also said its active data users declined by approximately 52,000 to 32.5 million in the last one year.

However, MTN announced that its revenue was up by 24.1% to N790.3 billion.

"Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) grew by 27.6% to N417.2 billion," it added.

According to MTN, EBITDA margin improved by 1.4 percentage points (pp) to 52.7% while capital expenditure was up by 39.1% to N186.4 billion (up 50.6% to N114.5 billion excluding right of use [RoU] assets).

But dividend per share of N4.55 kobo was shared to shareholders. This was up by 30%, it added.

Commenting on the results, MTN Nigeria CEO, Karl Toriola said, "In the first half of 2021, we made good progress strengthening the resilience of the business, managing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and enhancing support to our people, customers and other stakeholders.

"We extended our commitment to the Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) with an additional N3 billion contributions over a two-year period, half of which has already been paid. This is in support of efforts to promote the health and security of Nigerians, as we navigate our way through the pandemic; and in line with our Y'ello Hope initiatives through which we provided support to our broad base of stakeholders to the value of approximately N25 billion in 2020."
