Capital injection and equity stakes (including bailouts)

On 30 June 2012, the Kenyan Government approved a recapitalisation plan for Telkom Kenya (49% government owned, France Telecom being the other major shareholder). The Treasury and France Telecom agreed to each inject 5 billion Shillings (57.6 million USD) in the company. The Treasury decided to convert its share of Telkom debt into equity, which effectively recapitalises and restructures the balance sheet of the company. This restructuring allows to borrow additional funds more easily.
 
The measure mainly discriminates against the othertwo major players in the sector Safaricom (with Vodafone as a main shareholder) and Econet Limited (with Essar Communications as a main shareholder).
