Bharti Airtel Reportedly To Sell Its Phone Masts In Tanzania And Malawi
Nov 19 14
Bharti Airtel Limited (BSE:532454) is reportedly planning to sell its masts in Tanzania to Helios Towers Nigeria Limited, while units in Malawi will go to Eaton Towers Limited, a person with knowledge of the deal said. Bharti have been selling masts to specialist tower firms and leasing them back to cut maintenance costs on a continent with poor access to electricity and shoddy roads. The Tanzania sale will include about 1,000 towers, said the source, who declined to be identified because the deal has not been concluded. The source did not say how many towers in Malawi would be sold. Bharti has said it would sell 3,500 towers across six African countries to Eaton, and 3,100 masts in four countries to Helios. It has not given details on the countries involved. According to Reuters, Eaton Chief Executive Officer, Alan Harper declined to comment on the details of the sales, including the countries involved and Helios and Bharti both declined to comment. "They've been signed but the deals haven't closed yet. We're talking 3,500 towers across six countries so it takes time to move those sorts of transactions forward but we would hope that sort of transaction timeframe would be realistic,", Alan Harper said.
