According to a report by Kwayisi.org,

Scancom Plc, more commonly known as MTN Ghana, is a public limited liability company first incorporated in Ghana in April 1994 and licensed by the NCA as a mobile telecommunications services operator. In November 1994, MTN (then using the trade name “Spacefon”) launched its GSM mobile cellular services with initial coverage in Accra and Tema. Coverage was expanded to Kumasi and Obuasi in 1997, and to Takoradi, Bibiani, Tarkwa and Cape Coast in 1999. Since then, MTN has built a robust customer base in Ghana, increasing its subscribers from 2.5 million in 2006 to nearly 18 million as at December 2017.

MTN Ghana’s main revenue lines are airtime and subscription, interconnect and roaming, SMS, data, handset and accessories, mobile money, and value added services. Data and mobile money are expected to be the dominant drivers of revenue due to increased internet use and reliance on mobile money for payments.

MTN Ghana is listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) since September 3rd, 2018. MTN is traded on the GSE under the ticker symbol “MTNGH”. The International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) of GSE:MTNGH is GHEMTN051541.

In conclusion, MTN Ghana’s recent achievement of hitting an all-time high in its share price is a resounding success story that underscores the company’s strategic prowess and unwavering commitment to excellence. With a year-to-date price gain of 76%, the telecommunications giant has set a new benchmark for growth on the Ghana Stock Exchange.
