THE TOP SHAREHOLDERS IN NIC, CBA BANKS MERGER

Top: President Uhuru Kenyatta (left), his brother Muhoho and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta. Bottom: Billionaire businessman Naushad Merali (left), NIC Chairman James Ndegwa (centre) and his brother Andrew Ndegwa.
The merged CBA and NIC bank will count among its top owners some of Kenya’s most renowned billionaire investors and political figures, shareholder information on the two lenders has revealed.
Records from the Registrar of Companies have revealed the underlying ownership of the privately-held CBA bank, whose investors will control a combined 53 percent stake in the merged outfit that is set to start trading on the Nairobi Securities Exchange later this year with a market capitalisation of more than Sh65 billion.
President Uhuru Kenyatta; his brother Muhoho and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta will together directly hold stakes worth a combined Sh8.5 billion.
The Phillip Ndegwa family, which founded NIC Bank, will own an equivalent of Sh8.6 billion in the combined entity while billionaire businessman Naushad Merali will hold a stake worth about Sh1.9 billion.
The Kenyattas will control about 13.2 percent of the bank, a level of ownership that nearly matches the 13.25 percent equity that the Ndegwa family will also take in the merged entity.
The Kenyattas currently hold a 24.92 percent stake in CBA while the Ndegwas have a 25 percent interest in NIC. Mr Merali will end up with a 2.9 percent equity based on his present direct ownership of a 5.6 percent stake in CBA.
Besides the high-profile billionaires, CBA has other investors whose identity is cloaked in trusts and nominee accounts. Livingstone Registrars, for instance, has a 24.65 percent interest in the private bank that will in turn entitle it to a 13 percent equity worth Sh8.4 billion in the merged entity.

UGANDA REVISES FIRST OIL PRODUCTION TO 2022


Uganda expects to begin producing oil in 2022, its energy minister Irene Muloni said on Wednesday, indicating a slight delay from the country’s revised target of 2021.

Uganda discovered crude reserves more than 10 years ago but production has been repeatedly delayed by disagreements with field operators over taxes and development strategy.

A lack of infrastructure such as a transportation pipeline and a refining facility have also held up output.

“Production we are now looking at by 2022, our first production, from Kingfisher and Tilenga blocks,” Irene Muloni told Reuters on the sidelines of the Petrotech conference.

China’s CNOOC and France’s Total and London-based Tullow Oil have the stakes in the two areas. CNOOC is the operator of Kingfisher area while Total leads the development of Tilenga.

“We are preparing for production. We have to build a pipeline for exports and a refinery to add value. So unless those two projects are done we can’t start producing,” she said.

END OF THE SUPERJUMBO: AIRBUS IS GIVING UP ON THE A380


London (CNN Business) - Airbus will stop making the A380, pulling the plug on its iconic superjumbo jet that once promised to revolutionize commercial air travel but failed to deliver on outsized expectations.


The European plane maker said Thursday that it will stop delivering A380s in 2021 after its key customer, Dubai-based airline Emirates, slashed its orders for the world's largest airliner.

"It's a painful decision," Airbus CEO Tom Enders said during a conference call with analysts. "We've invested a lot of effort, a lot of resources and a lot of sweat into this aircraft."

"But obviously we need to be realistic," he added. "With the decision of Emirates to reduce orders, our order backlog is not sufficient to sustain production."

The decision could hit as many as 3,500 jobs at the manufacturer, whose operations span four major European countries, over the next three years.

The A380 was developed at a cost of $25 billion and first took to the skies 14 years ago. But the giant bet that airlines would need a plane that can carry up to 853 passengers between major airport hubs didn't pay off.

The company has delivered 234 of the superjumbos to date, less than a quarter of the 1,200 it predicted it would sell when it first introduced the double-decker aircraft. Its plans were undermined by airlines shifting their interest to lighter, more fuel efficient passenger jets that have reduced the need to ferry passengers between the big hubs.

PLANNING FOR SUCCESS: BUSINESS GROWTH FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES

Farha Mohamed,
Head of Enterprise Banking (SME),
Stanbic Bank Tanzania.
Africa has for many years been hailed as the economic powerhouse of the future, with untapped resources both natural and human. Case in point being Tanzania’s burgeoning population which according to the National Bureau of Statistics stands at 54 million people. The business environment has, in the space of a decade, transformed rapidly and created an ecosystem for small businesses to not only grow but thrive, yet in the age of tech and open-source information a large number of small businesses still fail within the first few years of operation.

In order for a business to succeed, it needs to constantly adapt alongside the evolving market dynamics, doubling down on the aspects that work and eliminating the ones that don't. According to financial advisors, the following basics will help your business prepare for success:

1. Be SMART
Goals are the starting point of any success story, having a clear view of where you want your business to head in the next 6 months, 1-year and even 10 years. Having a long-term vision allows you to track the performance of your business. Entry-level business studies teach us to create SMART goals. All future plans must be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time bound. One practice that will ensure that your business operation remains smart is regular financial audits. Annual audits are an excellent way for your business to gain more control over its financial situation and they also ensure that your statements are accurate with no discrepancies. Also, solid financial statements always come in handy when you need to get a loan to grow your business and can make a difference in the interest rate offered.

2. Finance
SME owners have a wide range of responsibilities as they play multiple roles in their enterprises and many find the notion of securing funding as a daunting task. Business owners are also often discouraged due to the misconception of having to undergo complex application procedures and submitting numerous documentations. One can navigate the maze of financing by finding a bank with advisory services for small businesses and banking products that specifically cater for SMEs. In addition, creating a banking history is a key component of loan eligibility. The statement of cash flow is a key financial statement when securing a loan. As a business owner, you need to be proactive in depositing sales into your bank account ensuring that all your business financial transactions reflect in your bank account and they all tally in the financial statements. Mobile bank applications make this all easy and convenient for daily use. Short- and long-term funding will rely on the relationship and history one has built with the bank; being creditworthy is a valuable asset for all SME owners.

AIR TANZANIA WILL IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS START FLIGHTS TO LUSAKA AND HARARE


Air Tanzania will in the next two weeks start flights to Lusaka, Zambia, and Harare. It also plans to launch long-haul flights to China and India at the end of March.

Air Tanzania Company Ltd chief executive officer Ladislaus Matindi said that with six aircraft on its fleet, international flights have only been delayed by the challenges of IATA membership — which have since been finalised — and getting onto the GDS (global distribution system), which the airline hopes to finalise soon.

The company has two Airbus planes and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which are to be deployed on routes to China and India, Mr Matindi said.

Connecting to the GDS will help the airline to embark on intercontinental routes as the system will now allow it access to the international reservations network.

When the process is completed, the airline can start flying to China and India as of next month.

“We have now been able to connect to three GDS firms, including Travel Port, a European one and a Chinese one. We are also in the final stages of agreements with Amadeus and Sabre,” Mr Matindi said.

Growing fleet


Air Tanzania’s entry into Southern Africa is boosted by its growing fleet, with two Airbus A220s received in just over a month.

It is expecting its second Dreamliner later in the year, which it plans to deploy on the India and China routes. But it says it will also be vying for a share of the African market.

“We are also looking at flying to Nairobi and the Democratic Republic of Congo before the year ends, while remaining on course to introduce flights to London, the UAE and Oman over the next two years,” Mr Matindi added.

AFRICAN UNION COMMISSION, AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK, REAFFIRM COMMITMENT TO ACCELERATE THE CONTINENT’S ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Moussa Faki Mahamat and the President of the African Development Bank Akinwumi Adesina, met Tuesday in Addis Ababa to reaffirm their commitment to accelerate Africa’s economic transformation.

Mahamat and Adesina co-chaired a high-level consultative meeting attended by senior management of both institutions to take stock of the ongoing collaboration between the two institutions. Discussions focused on ways to strengthen partnership in delivering Agenda 2063 and other global frameworks for development.

AUC Chairperson Mahamat noted the strong alignment of the African Development Bank’s High 5 strategic priorities with the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“The African Development Bank is the financial muscle of the African Union as far as Agenda 2063 is concerned, and we need to further institutionalize this partnership to make it more effective,” Mahamat said.

Addressing the audience, Adesina recalled that it was at the first meeting of the AUC, then known as the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in 1963, that heads of state endorsed the establishment of the African Development Bank. Since then, there has been a long history of cooperation between the two institutions.

“We must, therefore, build on the long-standing relations between our two institutions and pool our collective expertise and resources in pursuit of the economic development and social transformation of our dear continent,” he said.

Adesina underscored the strategic importance of the Joint Secretariat Support Office (JSSO) for the African Union Commission, UNECA and the African Development Bank. He also reaffirmed the Bank’s need to position JSSO as a platform to foster effective coordination and collaboration, while leveraging the comparative advantages of the three pan-African institutions.
