Ethiopia government is set to push back timetable for privatization of the country's phone monopoly.
The delay is at request of potential bidders for new licenses,who say they need more time to prepare.
Govt to come up with new timetable.
Orange,MTN and Safaricom had expressed interest.


Ethio-telecom struggles to provide anything more than basic voice service in most of the country. The government plans to sell as much as 49% of the company this year and issue two mobile and broadband licenses to boost competition.

Safaricom has opened talks with undisclosed investors to form a consortium that will this year bid for one of two Ethiopian telecoms licences due to the high entry costs that are likely to breach the Sh100 billion mark.

The Nairobi Securities Exchange-listed firm said it was racing to assemble the group of investors ahead of its Ethiopia bid, which is expected in April.
“We have not made any decisions (source of funding) yet as the constitution of the consortium has not been finalised,” acting Safaricom CEO Michael Joseph told the Business Daily in an interview on Monday. “It’s a consortium because it’s a big investment. I cannot provide names”.

Safaricom Likely to Borrow to Fund Ethiopia

Safaricom CEO says unlike Kenya, where Safaricom’s business became profitable within three and a half years, Ethiopia will probably be a ten year journey -- Bloomberg

Huge potential. Huge payday if they get it right. The initial costs may be due to initial investments to cover the country.
Safaricom reaped us off in the early days. In Ethiopia, they will probably face competition from others.

The borrowings will have an effect on the dividend policy/payout.
