We are pleased to have acted as Lead Transaction Advisor for Emtel Limited on their Initial Public Offering and subsequent listing on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius.

Emtel is one of the leading Information and Communications Technology providers in Mauritius and has over the last 35 years pioneered innovative technology solutions in Mauritius and the islands of Rodrigues and Agalega. Emtel offers a comprehensive range of ICT solutions suited for individual consumers, homes and business users. As one of the leading corporate citizens in Mauritius, Emtel’s business and operations are underpinned by a comprehensive sustainability framework premised on 3 pillars: environmental preservation, social inclusion and human capital. Through these pillars, Emtel continues to execute its commitment to a cleaner, more inclusive and equitable society in Mauritius and the surrounding islands of Rodrigues and Agalega.

Through this IPO, Emtel will become the first telecommunications operator in Mauritius to be listed on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius. The listing will broaden the company’s shareholder base and enhance its corporate governance and reporting framework thus enabling it to be more integrated into the economy of Mauritius and the surrounding islands of Rodrigues and Agalega.

As Lead Transaction Advisor, we are proud to have played a significant role in this IPO, having leveraged our Pan-African footprint to offer Emtel best-in-class transaction execution and advice. Our Pan-African focused Equity Capital Markets team is experienced in developing African Capital Markets and delivering landmark African IPOs, which include Vodacom Tanzania, Airtel Uganda and Airtel Africa.

We are proud to have supported this transaction, which is part of our story of enabling the growth of Africa’s Capital Markets.
