Telkom Kenya Limited Key Developments

Orange Reviewing Options For Uganda and Kenya Operations

Orange (ENXTPA:ORA) that owns the majority stake in Telkom Kenya Limited said on March 7, 2014 that it was reviewing its Kenyan operation with a view to taking new partners on board to stave off a financial crisis. Orange said that the review plan also includes the Uganda operation and that it had hired Lazard consultants to execute the task. "The group has recently started a strategic review with regards to our activities in Uganda and Kenya," France Telecom's press officer Tom Wright said. "One option would be to find new partners in these countries to ensure that the necessary financial and operating resources are available to maintain investment and support the continued development of operations," he said. That statement means Orange is considering moving to a new dispensation in which the government is not the sole partner in the business. That could happen when the Orange sells part of its 70% stake to another partner or exit the business altogether. Telkom Kenya is 30% owned by the Kenyan government, which has in the past year been reluctant to invest additional funds in the business.
