MTN Declares N177.8 Billion Pre-tax Loss Due to Depletion of Shareholders’ Funds

MTN Nigeria Plc has disclosed a pre-tax loss of N177.8 billion, in stark contrast to the pre-tax profit of N518.8 billion recorded the previous year. These losses have led to a complete depletion of shareholders’ funds.

This marks the initial financial loss experienced by the company after being listed as a publicly-traded entity in Nigeria.

The company explained that the losses were due to a significant foreign currency loss of N740 billion, which was higher than the N81 billion reported in 2022.

According to MTN, “the loss was significantly due to operational changes to the Nigerian Foreign exchange market, including the abolishment of the segmented/parallel structure announced by CBN in June 2023.”
