Pygma Consulting was engaged under the auspices of the West Africa Regional Communications Infrastructure Program (WARCIP) for the appropriate Re-positioning of a telecoms operator in light of changes brought by the then newly installed African Coast to Europe (“ACE”) cable, which significantly increased access for ICT service-providers in the country.
The initial due diligence looked into the company’s management structure , as well as the administrative, technical, regulatory and commercial aspects of the operations.
The due diligence conducted by Pygma was underpinned by a critical analysis of the operator’s current governance structure, its board’s structure, its functions and decision making roles. As part of its operational advisory services, Pygma assessed the operator’s ownership and corporate structure, licensing status, and interconnection agreements against the backdrop of the country’s ICT sector.
Pygma Consulting identified key areas and issues representing the operator’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and their impact on its performance within the relevant markets.
