Backed for success

Helios Towers Africa is one of Africa's best capitalized mobile towers operator with a diverse and supportive shareholder base

Since its launch, Helios Towers Africa has raised more than one billion dollars of equity capital from global investors.

This strong balance sheet gives operators significant reassurance that its existing towers will be maintained optimally and new towers built to satisfy demand.

It is also leaves Helios Towers Africa well placed to exploit future M&A opportunities as part of its pan-African expansion strategy.
