Telkom SA Seeks Acquisitions

Telkom SA SOC Limited (JSE:TKG) is eyeing acquisitions to expand its mobile business.

South Africa's Competition Commission Opposes Deal between MTN and Telkom South Africa

MTN and Telkom South Africa have abandoned their planned mobile network partnership after the Competition Commission opposed the deal. The two companies had been negotiating a deal that would have seen MTN acquire certain radio access network assets from Telkom and take over the financial and operational management of the latter's mobile infrastructure. The companies also planned to establish bilateral roaming. The aim was to help both operators compete more aggressively with Vodacom. The Commission found that the proposed transaction is likely to substantially prevent or lessen competition in the mobile services market. The commission announced, adding that the tie-up would give MTN an unfair advantage, while hampering Telkom's ability to compete. The commission announced the deal is likely to entrench a duopolistic market structure dominated by Vodacom and MTN. Telkom and MTN have agreed not to proceed with the transaction, as they wish to avoid a protracted tribunal hearing.
