London and Lagos, 5 August 2020: Airtel Networks Kenya Limited, an Airtel Africa PLC subsidiary, and Telkom Kenya Limited amongst other parties, had entered into an Agreement dated 8th February 2019 to combine their businesses in Kenya, so as to create an integrated telecommunications platform with mobile, enterprise, and wholesale divisions.

The completion of the Transaction was subject to the satisfaction of various conditions precedent, including regulatory approvals.

Despite Airtel Africa plc and Telkom respective endeavours to reach a successful closure, the Transaction has gone through a very lengthy process which has led the parties to reconsider their stance.

Accordingly, Airtel Africa plc and Telkom have decided to no longer pursue completion of the Transaction.

Raghunath Mandava, Airtel Africa CEO and MD said:

“Kenya is a large and growing market and we remain committed to building a growing profitable business. We currently serve more than 14 million Kenyan customers, a number that is growing month on month, and in the last quarter, our revenue numbers were up double-digit in constant currency in Kenya”.
