MTN Nigeria Becomes Public Company Ahead of Listing
The Mobile Telephone Network, MTN, has changed its company status from a private company to a public liability company (PLC), ahead of listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, Ferdi Moolman, the company's Nigeria CEO has said. This move comes after MTN Nigeria was embroiled in a legal battle with the government after being slapped with a heavy fine for not complying with the SIM card registration for all mobile phones, and fined again for allowing funds to leave the country in breach of foreign exchange laws.
