Leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) company, MTN Nigeria Communications Plc (“MTN”), announced the signing of a 7-year N200 billion Medium Term Facility with a consortium of seven (7) mostly local banks, with Citibank acting as coordinator and Quantum Zenith as Facility Agent.

The agreement was formally signed at a ceremony at the law offices of Aluko & Oyebode in Ikoyi, Lagos, in the presence of key partners and other stakeholders. The Medium Term Facility will enable MTN to fund its evolving business opportunities while assisting with capital expenditure and working capital, to deliver enhanced customer service. It follows the successful establishment of a similar seven-year, N200 billion facility by MTN in 2018 and forms part of the company’s wider programme to raise domestic debt.

Speaking at the signing, Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, Ferdi Moolman, expressed enthusiasm at the completion of the agreement, saying it signposts MTN’s commitment to and confidence in Nigeria, and the strength of the strategic collaboration between MTN Nigeria and local financial institutions, that will help deepen and broaden the provision of ICT services in Nigeria:

“This facility expands our existing successful domestic debt programme which we are using to fund increased network capacity, and the expansion of both the Voice and Data services on our network to customers in new areas, and with new next-generation services. We have enjoyed remarkable funding support from Nigeria’s financial institutions since our first facility in 2003 and this has been critical to the development of one of the largest telecoms network in Africa, with over 60m subscribers. I am delighted that, so soon after our successful listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, we are able to compliment it with such an important addition to our portfolio of debt.”
