Further moves into Africa

Bango has announced what is, in our view, a significant new payment route in Nigeria, giving 9mobile’s 17.2m subscribers the ability to charge purchases of digital content from the Google Play store to their 9mobile 9pay mobile wallet. The release follows the recent announcement with Victory Link in Egypt, but contains no details on the contract terms and we make no revisions to forecasts at this stage. With a growing mobile subscriber base, high Android penetration and low banking/credit card adoption, we continue to believe that Africa represents an attractive growth opportunity.
