MTN Cameroon Limited Key Developments

MTN Cameroon Announces Audited Earnings Results for the Year Ended 31 December 2014

MTN Cameroon announced audited earnings results for the year ended 31 December 2014. The company delivered a solid performance, increasing its subscribers by 10.9% to 9.7 million. On 31 December 2014, the internal alignment of the subscriber reporting methodology resulted in the restatement of subscriber numbers to 9.7 million, a reduction of 1.6 million subscribers. Despite this the operation maintained its leadership position with market share at 59.4%. Total revenue increased by 6.9%, supported by segmented voice and data offers focused on high value customers and youth. This included the successful launch of new value propositions such as MTN Hyper Booster to stimulate on-net usage and data adoption. Data revenue was increased by 35.4%, contributing 8.1% to total revenue. This was a good performance despite the commercial launch of a third mobile operator in September 2014 with an exclusive 3G licence. The company is in negotiations with the regulator to receive a 3G licence in the first half of 2015. The operation ended the year with 1.6 million registered MTN Mobile Money customers and continued to focus on increasing its active subscribers and transaction volumes. The company's EBITDA margin was increased by 0.2% points to 42.8% despite higher lease rental costs following the tower transaction. Capex amounted to ZAR 862 million. During the year, the company rolled out 125 new sites in advance of the 3G licence and made improvements to the quality and capacity of high traffic sites in the main cities.
