Broadband Infraco Reportedly Planned To Be Sold

Broadband Infraco SOC Limited may be sold. South Africa is reportedly looking to divest its stake in Broadband Infraco. BusinessTech reported citing Rabelani Dagada, spokesperson for the Johannesburg Broadband Network Project (JBNP) as saying, “There is (speculation) in the ICT sector that even the national government is considering selling their own broadband company, due to intense competition.” According to the news report, the government is estimated to require as much as ZAR 100 billion to meet its ambitious broadband targets. Department of Public Enterprises holds 74% stake while The Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa Limited holds 26% stake in Broadband Infraco.

IDC Not To Sell Stakes In Listed Companies

Geoffrey Qhena, Chief Executive Officer of The Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa Limited (IDC) said that IDC will not sell stakes in the listed companies to raise funds to help in Eskom Holdings SOC Limited's cash crunch. Geoffrey further said that selling stakes in the listed investments will result into loss of income which is counter to IDC's objectives. The investments in listed companies provide money to IDC to fund new businesses. According to Barclays, government can raise upto ZAR 86 billion by selling stakes in 10 listed companies. IDC hold stakes in 8 of the 10 companies which are Sasol Ltd. (JSE:SOL), Kumba Iron Ore Ltd. (JSE:KIO), ArcelorMittal South Africa Limited (JSE:ACL), Sappi Limited (JSE:SAP), Life Healthcare Group Holdings Limited (JSE:LHC), Hulamin Limited (JSE:HLM), Merafe Resources Limited (JSE:MRF) and BHP Billiton plc (LSE:BLT). "A complete disposal is out of the picture. Out of the eight we are taking out nothing because they are key in the IDC’s life…. We have not been approached by anyone," Geoffrey Qhena said.
