Abstract:

BMI View: A slight improvement in the average Telecoms Risk/Reward score for Sub-Saharan Africa reflects the positive impact of consolidation and service-focused growth strategies within the industry, and our expectation that commodity prices will hit their nadir in ---- and result in a slightly brighter macro story towards the latter years of our forecast period. However, the region will remain a global underperformer, as low spending power and operational risks continue to dampen its potential. The Telecoms Risk/Rewards scores for Sub-Saharan Africa have remained fairly stable in the Q- ---- update, with the overall regional telecoms score increasing by -.- points to --.- out of ---. Although only a minor positive gain, it is noteworthy because the region s Telecoms RRI score has steadily declined q-o-q over the last two years, partially due to the inclusion of smaller, underperforming markets, but more importantly owing to the impact of mobile market saturation in urban areas and the collapse of commodity prices.
