MTN Uganda Limited Key Developments

MTN Uganda Announces Preliminary Audited Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended 31 December 2016

MTN Uganda announced preliminary audited earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended 31 December 2016. Total revenue declined by 1.9%, led lower by a decrease in outgoing and incoming voice revenue. This was mainly impacted by the disconnection of subscribers in 2015 as well as the East African Community's One Network Area, which means that all calls between member countries are billed as though they were local. Capex decreased by 23.7% to ZAR 758 million against ZAR 951 million a year ago. EBITDA was ZAR 1,620 million against ZAR 1,775 million a year ago. NPS increased 3.5 pence per share in the fourth quarter of 2016 from 11.7% in the same quarter of 2015.

The Court Orders MTN Uganda to Pay Fines UGX 2.3 Billion to EzeeMoney

The commercial court has ordered MTN Uganda to pay the sum of UGX 2.3 billion (about USD 662,000) in damages to EzeeMoney Limited for sabotaging its business. Justice Henry Peter Adonyo on November 6, 2015 also ordered MTN to stop acting in an unlawful and anti-competitive manner, which denies other businesses an opportunity to prosper. MTN should pay UGX 800 million to EzeeMoney in general damages for loss of business. It should also pay a penalty of UGX 1.5 billion in punitive damages to deter not only MTN but also warn other companies against uncompetitive business tactics. It all started when EzeeMoney, which runs an e-money business, obtained a contract from MTN for the provision of digital transmission and 30 fixed telephone lines to carry out its mobile money business. EzeeMoney then contracted Yo! Uganda Limited (YUL) to implement the service after Uganda Communications Commission, the regulator, approved it on December 2012, to use the 7711 short code to enable its customers to subscribe for e-money services. But in 2013, MTN cancelled the contract, saying EzeeMoney was a direct competitor to its mobile money business. Through AF Mpanga and company advocates, EzeeMoney went to court, saying MTN's action "restricted and distorted competition". EzeeMoney said MTN also damaged its ties with YUL and deprived it of services of other telecommunications operators. It argued that MTN used its exclusivity agreements to stop its agents from working for any other firm with similar business, further limiting competition.
