MTN Uganda has announced the successful sale of its remaining shares from the 2021 initial public offering (IPO) on the Uganda Stock Exchange (USE), with the latest offer being significantly oversubscribed.

MTN Uganda’s debut on the USE in 2021 raised a record-breaking $4.43 billion, the largest capital raise in the exchange’s 24-year history. However, the IPO was notable for being the first in USE’s history to be undersubscribed. Ugandan regulations required MTN to sell 20% of its shares to local investors, but the company managed to sell only 13%.

Recent Share Offer

In an effort to rectify the initial shortfall, MTN Uganda offered over 1 billion ordinary shares on the USE from May 27 to June 10, 2024.

Overwhelming Response

The recent offer received an overwhelming response, with applications submitted for 3 billion shares, far exceeding the 1.6 billion shares available for sale. This strong demand reflects renewed investor confidence in MTN Uganda.

Resumption of Trading

Following the announcement of the oversubscription results, MTN Uganda has resumed trading its stock, which had been temporarily suspended during the share sale process.

Investor Outlook

MTN Uganda, which boasts a subscriber base of approximately 15 million, continues to show robust revenue growth and high profit margins. This financial stability promises substantial dividends for investors, making the company’s stock an increasingly attractive investment.

The successful oversubscription of MTN Uganda’s unsold shares marks a significant boost in investor confidence. For those who missed this opportunity, the telecom’s ongoing growth and profitability suggest more promising investment opportunities may arise in the future.
