Additionally, Airtel Africa announced a significant corporate action on August 15, 2023. The company confirmed the cancellation and extinction of all its deferred shares of $0.50 nominal value each. This decision, which was approved by shareholders at the annual general meeting on July 4, 2023, and later sanctioned by the High Court of England and Wales, was part of a capital reduction strategy. The primary goal of this capital reduction is to create additional distributable reserves, thereby enhancing the company’s capacity to return value to shareholders, potentially through dividends, distributions, or the purchase of its own shares.JAMB Result

Following the capital reduction, the issued share capital of Airtel Africa now stands at 3,758,151,504 ordinary shares, each with a nominal value of $0.50 and carrying one vote.
