At its 2nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) which was held on August 13, 2020, MTN Ghana announced a profit after tax of Gh¢ 1.01 billion for 2019. This figure representing a 33.6% increase Year-on-Year (YoY) in the profit margin, rightly shows a high-level performance by the company. The first-ever virtual meeting was held after the company sought an order from the court; as holding a virtual AGM was against MTN Ghana’s constitution.
The CEO of MTN Ghana, Selorm Adadevoh in his keynote remarks said the company was able to maintain its unbeaten market leadership — holding firmly to about 55.2% of the telecom industry market share.
