Rob Shuter comments : "We delivered encouraging results for the period, against the backdrop of difficult trading conditions. South Africa in particular was impacted by a weak economy as well as the implementation of lower out-of-bundle pricing and the new ICASA subscriber regulations in the first quarter of the year. Despite these headwinds, we progressed with our plans to build a digital operator, growing service revenue by 9,7%* and EBITDA by 10,2%*, which supported solid growth in operational earnings. Our holding company leverage ratio remained stable at 2,3x and we reduced our capex intensity to 16,9%^. Commercial momentum continued, with growth in our subscriber base of 7,7 million, in our active data users of 3,5 million, and in our Mobile Money users of 2,4 million. We now have leading network NPS in more than half of our markets, supported by the continued expansion and quality of our data networks. We delivered on several strategic projects including the listings of MTN Nigeria on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and Jumia, our e-commerce venture, on the New York Stock Exchange. The asset realisation programme delivered R2,1 billion to the group in the second quarter, we launched our Ayoba messaging platform in 3 markets and we were awarded a super-agent licence in Nigeria, enabling the expansion of our fintech business. We remain focused on building our digital operator strategy, focusing on being a scale player in both our evolving telco services as well as digital and fintech and delivering on our medium-term targets" External link

We delivered on several strategic projects including the listings of MTN Nigeria on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and Jumia, our e-commerce venture, on the New York Stock Exchange.
