BMI View: We hold our positive outlook for the Kenyan mobile market in our Q416 quarterly report update

and have once again made some positive forecast revisions, based on the higher than anticipated growth in

the first half of 2016. Strong mobile market growth will be supported by low penetration rates, currently

around 82.9%. Airtel has made significant investments into developing 4G services in the country and the

operator is poised to launch its high-speed data service to rival the primacy of Safaricom this year. Airtel is

set to release its 4G service before the end of 2016 and we are of the opinion that Orange will follow suit in

2017. Mobile financial services, in particular, will be a key driver for both subscription and revenue

growth. However, we remain watchful of recent consolidation in the market, strong competition in the

wireline sector, and Helios's acquisition of a 70% stake in Telkom Kenya. Furthermore, we are still of the

opinion that the completed digital migration will free up new spectrum, easing the response to growth in the

data market.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments

? The Kenyan mobile market grew by 9.2% y-o-y by the end of H116, with total subscribers reaching over

39.4mn.

? Airtel is set to launch its 4G LTE service in the country before the end of 2016 as it desperately seeks to

compete with the growing primacy of Safaricom. Orange is expected to launch their high-speed data

service in 2017.

? The regulator is planning to issue 4G spectrum concessions in the 800MHz band to all three operators

before the end of August 2016 for a fee of approximately USD25mn each. The regulator envisions

equitable holdings of the 800MHz spectrum by all three major operators to ensure healthy competition in

the market for high-speed data.
