The amount of the transaction has not been disclosed but a reliable source has indicated that it “gives Togocom an excellent valuation”. Indeed, it is a profitable company with over a 50% market share, ahead of the other local operator, Morocco’s Moov Togo, and recorded revenue of CFA francs 120 billion ($203m) in 2018. The State retains the remaining 49% stake. The new entrants in Togocom’s capital have undertaken to invest $271m (CFA francs 160bn) over the next seven years to develop broadband and modernise the networks at Togocom’s two business divisions: Togo Telecom (landlines) and Togo Cellulaire (mobiles).
