As an emerging market’s focused infrastructure investor, telecommunications is a core sector focus for STOA and South Africa is also one of STOA’s key targeted geographies. This deal will see STOA acquire a significant minority equity investment of 23,08% in MetroFibre, with actual inward foreign direct investment deployed in the physical build and expansion of MetroFibre’s network in South Africa.

Supporting growth and expansion

Beyond creating a step change in MetroFibre’s business by supplying the capital for their next phase of growth, the FTTH segment will improve the quality of life of South Africans. Moreover, since a recent International Telecommunications Union report indicates that a 10% increase in connectivity results in 1% GDP growth, increasing South African businesses’ access to fibre will also drive efficiency and growth in the South Africa economy.

The investment is particularly significant for South Africa at this time, since the inward foreign direct investment directly supports President Ramaphosa’s campaign to raise sufficient Foreign Direct Investment to re-ignite growth and address unemployment in our country.

We have no doubt that the continued expansion of MetroFibre will contribute to South Africa’s economic growth, as well as to the rapid development of our country’s digital economy. Most importantly, this partnership will give more businesses and homes access to reliable internet infrastructure – further connecting Africa to the world.

In November 2017, MetroFibre’s shareholders and management embarked on a capital expenditure expansion drive which would see the company invest over ZAR2 billion in its core network, to enhance its FTTH and FTTB offering.

“Broadening our portfolio into the telecommunications sector is a natural step for STOA, whose objective is to foster socio-economic development in African countries and reduce digital bridge amongst others.”
