Chief Executive Officer’s Strategic Review
In a year of transformation we are forming a ‘new’ Company, with a new leadership and a new culture, putting our customers at the heart of our business.
To grow customer relationships and lifetime value by delivering unparalleled customer experience, where customers define ‘excellence.’
We seek to deliver long-term and sustainable growth for shareholders through growing the lifetime value of our customer relationships – with the acquisition of Columbus we have refined our strategy to reflect our enhanced market positions and capabilities.
Our business model is based on providing customers with communications, information and entertainment services, at a price which delivers value to them, while enabling our Company to make a fair return for our shareholders.
1. Grow top line revenue
2. Maintain cost efficiency and EBITDA growth
3. Make the Company ‘A Great Place To Work’
4. Deliver unparalleled customer service
5. Increase returns on capital
Delivery of our goals is built upon six strategic imperatives.
Drive to mobile leadership
Video and content leadership
Grow our B2B and B2G business
Build a leading wholesale network
Make the integration a success

Through our corporate social responsibility programmes we positively impact the lives of the people we serve, with particular emphasis on making a difference through education, community development, sports, culture, health, among other areas of focus.
We are committed to maintaining high standards of ethical behaviour, operating fairly and with integrity. We adhere to global standards of ethics in business and remain a continuing member of the FTSE4GOOD.
We ensure our team members are aware of, receive training in and act in accordance with our Code of Conduct, Anti-Bribery Policy and ensure full compliance with the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
With the acquisition of Columbus International Inc we are forming a combined Group with a new leadership team and a new culture. We are focused on our people and aim to establish our Company as 'A Great Place to Work'.
We are forming a new culture, investing in our people. We provide equal access to opportunities, maintain fair and equitable employment policies that are aligned with local and international standards. We also provide training and career development opportunities for our team members.
We aim to continuously improve our environmental stewardship by developing and maintaining globally accepted green initiatives.
Each year we monitor our carbon footprint, replace legacy equipment with newer more energy efficient technology and seek to reduce travel through the use of video conferencing among other responsible environmental management principles.
Protecting our customer and team member data is our priority.
