S.Africa's Vodacom looking for acquisitions -CEO
JOHANNESBURG Nov 12 (Reuters) - Vodacom, the South African unit of Britain's Vodafone, is looking for potential acquisitions in Africa, its chief executive said on Monday.
"For us to sustain the growth of the group going forward we think we need to look at new opportunities as well," Chief Executive Shameel Joosub said at the company's earnings conference, when asked about acquisitions.
Vodacom is the dominant mobile operator in South Africa, but has a much smaller presence on the broader continent, where it is dwarfed by rival MTN Group.
