MTN Group sees a 50% lift in earnings

MTN Group Limited said yesterday that it expects its Highline earnings for the year ended December 2019 to increase by 50%. The optimistic forecast is coming, despite some of the issues the telecommunications company had experienced in some of its major markets, including Nigeria.

However, the projected 50% revenue growth is still less than what was recorded in full-year 2018. This is the direct effect of the regulatory fines the company had to pay to the Nigerian government last year.

Reuters also reported that the company has projected its headline earnings per share for the period to be within the range of 438 to 506 cents ahead of the result, which is expected to be released in March.

MTN Group Limited is the parent company of MTN Nigeria Communications Plc, which is listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.Last year.

 The listing is part of a settlement agreement between the company and Nigerian regulators over an infraction committed by the company in 2015  when it failed to deactivate up to five million unregistered SIM cards.
The company was also fined the sum of N1.04 trillion over this infraction, although it ended up paying just N330 million.

More regulatory troubles trailed MTN Nigeria, especially in 2018 when it was accused by the Central Bank of Nigeria of illegally repatriating $8.1 billion to South Africa. The Office of Nigeria’s Attorney General also demanded that the company should pay back the sum of $2 billion, which it was accused of owing in back taxes.
