18 Sep Call: Naspers CEO Bob van Dijk on the MultiChoice unbundling

Naspers Group CEO Bob van Dijk, together with Naspers video entertainment CEO Imtiaz Patel and MultiChoice South Africa CEO Calvo Mawela, held a media call on Tuesday morning to discuss Naspers's plan to unbundle MultiChoice and list it on the JSE.
In the call, Van Dijk explained the rationale for the decision, while Patel set out why he believes MultiChoice is well positioned for the future, despite the competitive threats posed by international online streaming services like Netflix.
In the call, TechCentral asked Van Dijk why Naspers has decided not to retain a stake in MultiChoice following the unbundling and what the group's plans are for Showmax operations beyond Africa (which are not included in the planned listing of MultiChoice Group on the JSE).
