MTN And Stockbrokers make last call on IPO as SCD account holders more than double

MTN alongside its lead stockbrokers has today made a final call to the members of the public who wish to apply for the company’s shares to do so ahead of the closure of its Initial Public Offering that is only three days away.

This last call was made by the MTN Chief Executive Officer, Wim Vanhelleputte and the SBG Chief Executive Officer, Joram Ongura in a press conference held today at the Kampala Serena Conference Center.

The MTN Initial Public Offer (IPO) was opened on 11th October 2021 and will close in three days’ time on Monday 22nd November 2021. The secondary sale of 4.5 billion shares by the MTN is at an offer price of UGX200 per share with 500 shares being the minimum number of shares an individual can apply for, an implication that one can become an MTN shareholder for as low as UGX100,000.

As the first ever paperless IPO, MTN subscribers are afforded the convenience of opening their SCD accounts as well as applying for shares using their mobile phones through the MyMTN app or by simply dialing *165*65# and following prompts. Traditional payment channels are also be available across Uganda at Stanbic Bank, Absa Bank and Standard Chartered Bank branches and authorized selling agents.

Individual investors who apply through the mIPO platform will receive 10 bonus shares for every 100 shares allocated to them while those who use the traditional application channels will get 5 bonus shares for every 100 shares allocated to them.

Wim Vanhelleputte said that within the period, over 60,000 individuals have opened Securities Central Depository (SCD) accounts.

“This is a great success because it has more than doubled the number of SCD account holders in a few weeks’ time,”

Vanhelleputte further noted that upon the request from their customers, the daily limit that one can apply for shares has been increased to 20 million shillings up from 5million shillings.

“This implies that starting today, our existing SCD account holders can apply for shares of up to 20 million shillings per day,” Vanhelleputte said.

During the six-week period of the MTN IPO, the company alongside its stock brokers held over 300 townhalls and a series of media engagements across the country in a bid to sensitize masses about the offer as a way of giving everyone in Uganda an opportunity to become a part owner of the biggest company in the country.

The initiative to publicly list the company is in line with MTN Group’s localisation agenda and also in fulfilment of the requirements of MTN’s second national operator license issued by Uganda Communications Commission in 2020 in accordance with the national broadband policy of 2018.

In line with the above policy, MTN also committed to investing 3million USD in Uganda’s telecom sector over the next three years.

Upon successful completion of the offer period which ends on Monday 22nd November, 2021, MTN will allocate shares with priority given to Ugandans as it ushers the company onto the main investment market segment of the USE, fulfilling its license requirement of listing by June 2022.

“As management, we are committed to deliver the growth of the company so that potential investors and share holders get their returns. To the members of the public who are interested in the offer, it is still valid for three days until Monday 22nd November 2021 at 4pm,” Vanhelleputte concluded.

  • During this promotion, MTN MoMo customers will be able to send money to other MoMo customers for free when they use the MTN MoMo app. 
  • The MTN MoMo offer promotion which takes effect on 15th November will last two months.

 

MTN Mobile Money Ltd has increased the number of Senkyu points a customer gets to 15 points for every UGX 100 charged in MoMo withdrawal fees. The points are given on the withdrawal fees that the customer is charged i.e., for every 100/- a customer is charged they receive 15 Senkyu points. 

In addition, sending money between MTN MoMo customers on the MTN MoMo app has been made free, during the promotion that will go on till early 2022. 

MTN Senkyu is a customer loyalty initiative aimed at rewarding customers who use MTN services. Once a customer dial *141# and joins the Senkyu program, they start receiving points for using MTN services including loading airtime and bundles, making calls, sending messages, using data and MTN MoMo services such as sending money, making payments, depositing, and withdrawing at a mobile money agent. 

While making the announcement, Stephen Mutana, the Ag. Chief Executive Officer MTN Mobile Money Uganda Limited said the promotion’s objective MTN is to reward its customers who ardently use its services.

“As we draw closer to the end of the year, we want to recognize and appreciate our customers who have continuously used MTN services. That is why we want to reward them with loyalty points that can be used to enjoy more of those services,” Mutana explained. 

Mutana said the decision is informed by the increased person to person transactions over the last two years. 

According to recent statistics from Bank of Uganda, person to person transaction values have grown from UGX1.1trillion in January 2021 to UGX1.4 trillion in June 2021.

He further explained that the promotional offer serves to drive affordability of cashless transactions with the aim of boosting financial inclusion across the country.

“We at MTN believe that through initiatives such as this one, we can increase financial inclusion which is necessary because each and every single person deserves access to mobile financial services,” he noted. 

Mobile money is currently the biggest contributor to financial inclusion in the country, standing at 78% according to the Finscope survey of 2018. 

This promotion is yet another effort by MTN to drive affordability of mobile financial services for its customers following a reduction in withdrawal rates earlier in May this year.
