Safaricom is Planning to Expand its Business to Regional Africa with eCommerce as its Top Priority


Kenya’s top mobile phone carrier Safaricom has big plans for the future.In its pipeline is a plan to put its business in a regional map amid diversification processes that have seen the telco branch into various business portfolios such its incoming eCommerce venture, improved payment solutions for merchants and music streaming services.
Nonetheless, the telco has a lot of cash at its disposal, and this surplus has made industry experts predict Safaricom’s venture in Eastern Africa’s largest economy, Ethiopia.
What’s more, Collymore says that the expansion has been actualized after South Africa’s Vodacom paid $2.6 billion for a 35 per cent stake in Safaricom a few weeks ago. This will pave way for Safaricom to take its business to outside markets that were held by Vodacom.

Finally some light at the end of the tunnel in terms of expansion outside the country



Safaricom has denied reports of the company entering into the Ethiopian market.

The Kenyan telco had been said to be gearing up for its first venture abroad, with reports that it was in negotiations with the Ethiopian government for a stake in state-owned monopoly Ethio Telecom.

“We wish to categorically state that we are not engaged in any conversations with Ethio Telecom on this matter. Any information to the contrary is completely inaccurate,” CEO Bob Collymore told The EastAfrican.

Ethiopian media reported last week that the government had opened discussions with Safaricom on the sale of half of the shares of Ethio Telecom.
Kenya’s Principal Secretary in-charge of ICT Victor Kyalo said he had seen a tweet about the transaction.

“It is not clear whether it is Safaricom or Vodacom. I tried to check, but nobody seems to know any information. If they have, they seem to be guarding it,” Mr Kyalo told The EastAfrican. The Kenyan government owns 40 per cent of Safaricom.

Last week, Ethiopian satellite broadcaster Esat reported that both the sale of Ethio Telecom shares to Safaricom and the sale of the Addis Ababa Hilton Hotel to Ethiopian-born Saudi tycoon Sheikh Mohamnmed Hussien Alamoudi, the 159th richest man in the world according to Forbes, were part of the authorities efforts to ease the forex crunch in the country and tackle indebtedness.

Two years ago the story was denied by the PS ICT Victor Kyalo and Safaricom CEO then Bob Collymore.
Now the truth has come out of interest in acquiring a stake.

Ethio telecom 2018/2019 Financial results
Revenue - - - $1.2bn
Net income---$198mn

Let's say Company is valued at sh.200bn using a price to earnings ratio of 10
If the Ethiopian government sells a 20% stake, safaricom may have to folk out $400mn or ksh.40bn
Easy for Saf which paid 75bn+ in dividends last year.

Let's wait and see what % stake will up for sale
I was using your numbers. Even 50% at 100bn ($1bn) is do-able by Saf given it has the ability to borrow based on its regular and substantial cash inflow and debt-free balance sheet.


Ethio Telecom has appointed international consulting firm KPMG to evaluate its assets, and an advisor on the privatisation process will be appointed soon, a senior finance ministry official said on Thursday.

KPMG have been appointed to evaluate the assets of Ethio Telecom.This will help in coming up with a valuation of the company so as to determine the consideration of the stake to be sold.

Sh3000 will get a Safaricom customer 15GB worth of bundles while Sh10,000 will earn them a 50GB non-expiring bundle.
All these options do not however come with the free WhatsApp bundles.

Expiring bundles of Sh3000 will earn a customer 25GB worth of data, Sh2000 will purchase 15GB data, Sh1000 will get a subscriber 5GB data, all with free WhatsApp data.

There's no difference in price/Gb (both are 200/Gb) between the 2 bundles. Doesn't make sense to me to buy the larger bundle given the time value of money.

All these options do not however come with the free WhatsApp bundles.

Expiring bundles of Sh3000 will earn a customer 25GB worth of data, Sh2000 will purchase 15GB data, Sh1000 will get a subscriber 5GB data, all with free WhatsApp data.
Doesn't the "free WhatsApp data" only kick in AFTER the bundle is exhausted? It does not work for me given I use data for a lot more than just WhatsApp.

In all our shops countrywide, customers will enjoy free WiFi.

Safaricom PLC's pledge to YOU.
Simple: In how we connect with each other
Transparent: In how you buy airtime and data
Honest: How you see your usage


Safaricom will allow new customers to choose their numbers and will be introducing cheaper
tarrifs for older people.
