News: FG engages litigation firm Franklin Wyatt in legal battle with Eni S.p.A

A Nigerian company, Meter Assets Finance and Management Company (MAPCo), has made plans to raise 480 billion naira ($ 1.2 billion) over the next 3 years, to buy electricity meters and help companies Electricity Distribution Company (DISCO) to bridge the revenue gaps in their operations. .

It also supports the federal government’s initiative to ensure that all electricity consumers are metered, which will end estimated billing by DISCOs.

According to a PricewaterhouseCoopers report, less than a tenth of Nigeria’s 41 million households have their electricity use measured, and half of them are defective. As a result, distribution companies have to estimate bills, resulting in constant conflict with consumers delaying payments.

New Hampshire Capital CEO Onion Omonforma said Meter Assets Finance and Management Co. hopes to end the practice of estimated billing by raising funds to purchase and supply meters to consumers.

New Hampshire Capital, FBNQuest, and Kairos Investments Africa are helping to structure and structure the business, known as MAPCo, for investors to buy shares or inject debt into the business.

What they say

Omonformaa said, “Electricity utilities will then have the money to go back and buy more meters and the cycle will continue, paving the way for the metering gap to be reduced. MAPCo will collect the cost of meters from consumers at a premium over the next 10 years. The meters will be returned to the electricity distribution companies once paid.

While revealing that MAPCo plans to issue a 100 billion naira bond next year, Omonforma also pointed out that road shows are planned in the United States and Europe and will include local institutional investors.

He said, “We expect a lot of people looking for a long-term instrument to find it useful ”.

It can be recalled that in addition to repealing the estimated billing method in determining tariffs for electricity consumers; the federal government had insisted that all consumers should be measured, as part of the condition of a tariff increase.

Also, within the framework of the agreement concluded with the unions concerning the tariff increase; the federal government announced that the national mass metering program will be accelerated, with the distribution of 6 million meters free to Nigerians.

What does that mean

A large number of electricity consumers in the 36 states and the FCT are still not measured by their respective DISCOs. This MAPCo initiative will help close the existing gap, with more electricity consumers acquiring a prepaid meter and removing billing deemed controversial.
