Supporting growth and expansion

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.

Standard Bank’s role the deal

Standard Bank acted as Financial Advisor to MetroFibre in the equity capital raise, adopting a two phased process with a significant amount of information shared in the early part of the process. This approach allowed the parties to quickly assess the opportunity and reach commercial consensus on value and shareholder alignment.

Our deep understanding of the telecommunications sector, our international footprint and our exceptional advisory capabilities enabled us to provide a bespoke solution to MetroFibre, balancing the requirements of incoming and existing shareholders to attract the right partner that shares the same values as MetroFibre’s management and shareholders.

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.

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.

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.
