Price is USD. If they buy Barclay's Africa that will be a huge fundraising. What will diamond Bob do ...

Pounds or dollars - I can't remember but definitely not pence, probably turned up due to Barclays reversing out of the region and Bob D ready to "pounce" - or something like that..

FWIW I bought a small stake yesterday. The CEO sounded very confident on the conference call about propects for this year and 20% RoE being achievable in the medium term.

Jpuff - the possibility of a stable post-election situation in Nigeria has to be a positive. On the other hand, a big macroeconomic worry is the effect of a rise in US interest rates and its effect on EM currencies. The strong dollar has already affected the accounts of ATMA. On a long-term view, Africa can't be ignored. But banks have a nasty habit of attracting trouble big time ... and you don't need to visit Africa to see that scenario.

David Stevenson in the FT today: It’s on that basis that I’ve recently added Atlas Mara to my own holdings. This is the African investment vehicle of former Barclays boss Bob Diamond and Africa-based entrepreneur Ashish Thakkar. Now the mere mention of Mr Diamond might spark some angst but I maintain that – love him or hate him – he built a remarkable business at Barclays and is one of the most formidable bankers of his generation. His focus on Africa alongside one of the best businessmen in east Africa (Mr Thakkar is Ugandan) is, I think, a big strength. Atlas Mara is in effect in its “chrysalis phase”, slowly spending money that will in turn allow it to emerge as a big player in Nigerian and African banking generally. It’s already done some big deals involving ADC and BancABC in southern and eastern Africa, invested in a new bank in Rwanda and acquired a chunky stake in Union Bank of Nigeria. This last deal has a fascinating echo – UBN used to be known as Barclays Bank CDO and has now grown into a regional bank with $6.3bn of assets. Atlas raised $325m at the end of last year and another $300m in the summer and is clearly building a war chest to assemble a regional banking powerhouse. Investors have to take a fair bit of this on trust, of course, but I think Mr Diamond and Mr Thakkar will deliver. If they do, UK-based investors will have a relatively clean way to play what will be one of the major investment stories of the next few decades. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/cf06907e-425c-11e4-9818-00144feabdc0.html#ixzz3EV2IvXFk The major investment story is African development.

Shares currently suspended due to acquisition of Bank ABC, operating in sub-Saharan Africa and has appointed (poached) John Vitalo from Barclays as new CEO. Also pursuing interests in the commercial arm of the Bank of Rwanda. Anything with Bob Diamond in it has to be worth a dabble when the shares are re-listed.
