BTC seeks open trading of its shares

Tuesday 23 October 2018 | 15:11 CET | News
The Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC) wants the trading of its shares to be opened up to all investors, instead of just citizens, Mmegi reported. BTC MD Anthony Masunga said the opening up of the group's trading was necessary to accurately produce a value for BTC and in turn return proper value to investors. Masunga said 80 percent of the company's investors hold shares of 5,000 and below, which creates volatility for the stock.
