8 Jun Interview: Pieter Uys on the big Vumatel deal

Thank you for listening to the TechCentral podcast. In this episode, Duncan McLeod is joined on a call by Pieter Uys, nonexecutive chairman of Community Investment Ventures Holdings (CIVH), which has just acquired a 34.9% stake in fibre-to-the-home operator Vumatel.
CIVH, whose majority shareholder is Remgro, has announced it intends buying 100% of the equity in Vumatel once it has raised sufficient funding.
In the podcast, Uys explains why the transaction is being done in two parts - CIVH has a few months to raise the necessary funding to complete the acquisition - and why he believes Vumatel is an attractive acquisition target.
He explains how Dark Fibre Africa, in which CIVH has a significant shareholding, could work with Vumatel to extend fibre access to more South Africans.
It's a great interview. Don't miss it!
