Airtel, Globacom and Others in hot Race to Acquire 9Mobile NG

Ever since Etisalat NG re-branded to 9Mobile, her debt saga reduced a bit. But it's more trouble for the fourth largest network operator in Nigeria, as there's a huge competition going on—within bidders—to acquire the brand.

The 9Mobile is said to be open to a new investor that is willing to invest heavily in the telecoms company in such a way that it will have the required amount of money to offset its $1.2 billion bank loan.

Not fewer than ten companies have expressed interest in acquiring 9Mobile which has over 16 million registered subscribers in Nigeria.

List of Companies That Want to Purchase 9Mobile
1. Abraaj Capital

3. Airtel
4. Alheri Engineering
5. Carlyle Group
6. Centricus Capital and Africell
7. Globacom
8. Helios Towers
9. Smile Telecoms Holdings
10. Teleology Holdings

Each of the above firms is required to submit a $150m bond in order to proceed.
