British firms target Nairobi contractors

Companies

British credit guarantee firm GuarantCo and risk venture fund InfraCo Africa have opened a regional office in Nairobi targeting new infrastructure deals in East and southern Africa.

The two are part of the London-based multilateral Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG), which has been active in the region for over 15 years.

PIDG established GuarantCo in 2006 with the aim of encouraging infrastructure development in low income countries, through credit guarantees that enable infrastructure projects to raise debt finance.

In April last year, the firm announced its intention to spend Sh20 billion ($200 million) to guarantee local infrastructure financiers over the next three to five years.

Local contractors have found it difficult to win big infrastructure tenders for lack of financial guarantees.

The 300 megawatts Lake Turkana Wind Power project, for example almost stalled after the World Bank withdrew its guarantee, but later the African Development Bank stepped in to offer a partial guarantee for the deal.

The Nairobi office is PIDG’s first in Africa and is expected to boost engagement with local markets, originate new deals and mobilise private capital.

“This office demonstrates GuarantCo’s commitment to the region to catalyse the delivery and roll out of infrastructure projects and help support the development of the local capital markets to deliver solutions that benefit society,’ said Janice Kotut, GuarantCo regional director, East and Southern Africa.

The local team is also expected to strengthen relations with regional partners as well as respond rapidly and flexibly to needs of existing project portfolios.

The credit guarantees will also enable banks to extend the lending tenure, aligning them to the needs of infrastructure developers. They can also take on more risk with the guarantee, increasing the amount they lend to a single customer.

InfraCo Africa chairman Brian Count said the joint base in Nairobi will create opportunities to boost the complementary work of the two companies.

“We believe that a Nairobi office will allow us to better identify project opportunities and develop better relations with both our key partners and decision makers,” he said.

PIDG established InfraCo Africa in 2004 to provide early stage risk capital, private sector development expertise and the highest operating standards in sub-Saharan Africa.

To date, its projects have mobilised over Sh200 billion ($2bn) of investment and provided new infrastructure for approximately 13 million people in the region.

Liquid Telecom to sign Sh618m Ketraco fibre cables deal

Companies

Internet service provider Liquid Telecom Kenya is Wednesday set to sign a Sh618 million contract with the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco) that will see it operate the latter’s fibre-optic infrastructure.

Ketraco in March advertised for a private sector company to design, supply, install, operate, manage and commercialise its fibre network on a revenue-sharing agreement.

The State-owned electricity transmission firm, which has about 1,800 kilometres of electricity cables fitted with fibre optic cables, has now settled on South African firm Liquid Telecom.

“Ketraco and Liquid Telecom are inviting you to a contract signing that will see Liquid Telecom operate Ketraco’s fibre and extend fibre connections to remote areas of Kenya and the region,” Ketraco said in a statement.

Ketraco has been implementing a broadband strategy that involves leasing extra fibre optic capacity, in a move meant to generate additional revenue for the State corporation.

Its new strategy, however, is to partner with third parties with vast experience in the telecoms sector to manage the system as it focus on its core mandate or laying power cables.

Ketraco says it expects to construct about 7,000 kilometres of high voltage lines across the country and for regional interconnection in the next five years.

All electricity transmission lines are fitted with fibre optic to aid communication between generators and control centres. However, it does not utilise the entire capacity.

The firm has currently leased out some capacity to Safaricom #ticker:SCOM and Jamii Telecoms Ltd.

In 2014 the Communications Authority of Kenya granted Ketraco a network facility provider tier 2 (NFPT2) licence, allowing the firm to lease out fibre to third parties.

5 Reasons to Send Business Christmas Cards

The holiday season will soon be upon us, which means that it’s time for businesses to start thinking about Christmas cards. If you’ve never sent business holiday cards, or don’t make a point of sending them out every year, here are five reasons why you should start:

1. Meet Expectations. Although the adage, “It’s better to give than to receive,” is a sentimental favorite, those with whom you do business expect to be remembered during the holidays. Holiday greeting cards help smooth your business relationships during the rest of the year by meeting expectations during the Christmas season.

2. Improve Customer Relations. Whether you have a business-to-business enterprise, provide a professional service, or own a retail store, chances are that your success is built upon maintaining relationships with your customers and clients. Christmas cards show your customers and clients that you appreciate their business, and that you want to share the spirit of the season.

3. Cost Effective. Perhaps you already buy holiday gifts and remembrances for your best customers or clients, but business holiday cards allow you to reach many more people for relatively little money. You can purchase personalized business holiday cards for as little as $1.40 each, including options to select among many different styles and verses, several colors of ink, and imprinted envelopes. This is an excellent investment in your business.

4. Excellent Return on Investment. Chances are, you and your company receive business Christmas cards from your vendors and suppliers. So, you understand the warm feelings that arise when you read their holiday cards, and you probably experience a “carryover” positive impression when you do your purchasing in the New Year. If you doubt that business holiday cards generate an excellent return on investment, ask yourself this: All other things being equal, which company would you choose to do business with – the company that sent you a holiday card every year or the company that only contacted you when it was time to reorder or collect payment?

5. Limitless Choices. With the rise of Internet and ecommerce, companies have an unprecedented opportunity to select business Christmas cards that reflect their company’s image and values. The best online sources for business holiday cards have a wide variety of high quality card designs. In addition, the best online greeting card companies offer a free choice of verse, free coordinated foil-lined envelopes, free samples of Christmas cards, and a multitude of choices for personalization.

In today’s business world, you need to take advantage of every opportunity to differentiate your company from your competition. Sending business Christmas cards is a small gesture than can mean improved customer relationships and an excellent return on investment. You really can’t afford not to send holiday cards to your customers, clients, and associates.
