“At TMT Finance News we are reporting on a significant amount of deal activity in Africa, including Liquid Telecom’s takeover of Neotel, the ongoing sale of Millicom’s African portfolio, and the potential sale of certain Airtel assets. Several telecom IPOs are also in the pipeline. Meanwhile, towercos are entering the next wave of growth, with IPOs, consolidation and further equity investment predicted. In tech and media, areas such as fintech, datacentres and pay-TV are all considered ‘hot’ sectors for growth, investment and demand in 2017,” said d’Arrast.
