How IHS creates shared value
The rationale for IHS’s acquisitions in Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire and their plan to scale to 25,000 co-location towers in the next five years
IHS has risen from a proven engineering and managed services business partner in Nigeria to become the largest towerco in Africa, by number of towers owned and managed. IHS were in the headlines again in early April 2013, taking over the management and marketing rights of over 2,000 towers from Orange to add to the 1,758 towers they acquired from MTN in Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire in 2012. Selected members of the press and analyst community joined three senior members of the IHS management team for a breakfast briefing in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress, where they explained their breakthrough year in 2012 and ambitions to scale to over 25,000 towers owned or managed in MEA within the next five years.
