The Offer will provide an opportunity for Ugandan retail and professional investors to own a stake in MTN Uganda. Also, it will ensure they participate in its future growth.

MTN Uganda said, “The Uganda unit of South Africa’s MTN Group has received regulatory approval for the extra share sale.” This statement was published in The East African Newspaper.

MTN Uganda To Sell Shares To Local Investors

MTN Uganda sought to sell 20% of its shares to local investors to fulfil regulatory requirements, but only met 60% of that target. This was when MTN listed on the Ugandan stock market three years ago.

MTN Uganda said it will sell the shares on the secondary market of the Uganda Securities Exchange (USE) between May 27 and June 10. The company has a subscriber base of about 15 million people and also offers mobile money financial services. Its main competitor is the local unit of Bharti Airtel.
