Congratulations to IHS Africa on their acquisition of 1,758 towers from MTN in Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon. The cost per tower is US$151.5k in Cote d’Ivoire (US$141m purchase price) and US$173k in Cameroon (US$143m). While one needs to know the lease rate to evaluate the deal properly, industry commentators agree that MTN realized a good price, while IHS Africa have paid a justifiable premium to cement their place among the most credible independent tower companies in Africa. Indeed, this deal makes IHS Africa the largest independent tower company in West Africa with a presence in the four largest economies in the region; Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire.
