Still a massive write off on Forex issues, until that is sorted, Imo sort of relying on share buybacks to keep share price up? Views? DYOR

Just looked at this for the first time. Tricky analysis: AAF earns income in depreciating currencies and pays for the infrastructure in hard currencies. FY23 accounts shows its debt is two-thirds in USD, but probably that will fall when the $550m of head office debt is paid down in May.

This problem will not go away as their expectation is for technology obsolescence every ten years so a new round of capex - importing the latest tech - will be needed in hard currency again.

YoY revenues in constant currencies are rising strongly, but it doesn't appear to have the ability to raise rates easily in Nigeria, where the black market rate FX and market FX rates have recently been equalised, halving the balance sheet value of AAFs assets. Are the market rates and black market rates already diverging again? Who knows?

Nigeria is 40% of revenues and similar shares of EBITDA and capex.

Also, I don't know how they lost $245m on their FX hedges: I'd have expected them to pay out when the currency was devalued?? Unless this is a loss on the translation of their foreign assets into USD after devaluation, and is just inaccurately described?

Too complicated/difficult for me to invest...

(Sharecast News) - Indian Continent Investment, a firm linked to Airtel Africa non-executive director Shravin Bharti Mittal, added to its stake in the telecommunications group ahead of the Easter break.

On 28 March, the firm purchased approximately 1.140m shares, at £1.0593 apiece, through the London Stock Exchange.

The total transaction amount reached £1,207,338.17.

It followed a flurry of other large share purchases throughout the latter half of the second quarter.

These are huge purchases, presume that is a good sign directors spending so much money? DYOR and IMO! views?

With further share buy-backs, should we see this trend back towards £1.20?

Tiger. I can’t say I know what the market is afraid of but I can say what worries me (and stops me adding to my position at present):

1). AAF $debt. While the holdco $ debt is likely to be repaid in a few months (I think enough cash is already sitting there to pay it off), there is also significant debt at the local companies. Over time, AAF has been trying to move this into local currencies. The one subsidiary where I believe (DYOR) there is still aa significant amount of USD denominated debt is Nigeria, where I seem to remember reading that 20% of the debt was still USD denominated.


2). The scale of the devaluation of the Naira will clearly be inflationary. AAF’s costs (in Naira) will be increasing sharply. I am unclear if they have the ability to increase pricing proportionately - to what exent do they need approval from regulator/ Govt?


I am interested in adding but I need to get comfortable on these two points.

I forget the percentage (dig in the annual report if you need the exact number), but it's quite a bit - Nigeria is AAF's biggest market by a distance.
What puzzles me is the devaluation of the naira (to the black market rate) is a one-off hit. And a sensible long-term economic reform.
All in all, I want exposure to the growth possibilities of a huge and vibrant (if chaotic) African market like Nigeria. So I don't get this share price movement at all - AAF is down 30% in a month. Happy to buy for the long term at these levels, though, so not complaining!
Posted at 18/2/2024 13:43 by tigerbythetail
I don't get this at all. The black market rate of the Nigerian naira was always the "true" rate, and the official rate was always fundamentally artificial.
The new President in Nigeria has devalued the official naira rate so that it now matches the black market rate - IMO a sensible economic reform.
Why on earth has this caused a massive plunge in AAF's share price? As far as I can tell, nothing about the business has essentially changed!
Oh, and a $100m buyback is roughly 2% of all shares in issue. Yes, that will make a difference.
