Our strategy

As a multinational group of ecommerce and media brands, we understand how to identify consumer needs, read technology trends, manage entrepreneurs, write code, develop solutions to consumer problems and service their needs. We put users worldwide in touch with trading opportunities, entertainment, information, gaming and access to their friends.

We aspire to be strong operators in the ecommerce space. Our focus is on stepping-up growth in classifieds, driving scale and expanding our footprint in our B2C businesses, pushing further into new growth areas and prioritising mobile. We have recently re-organised our businesses into global units under dedicated management. This should strengthen our competitive position by driving cohesion in terms of strategy, technology, systems and talent management.

Our pay-TV strategy is to deliver quality entertainment “anytime, anywhere and on any device”. We are focused on capturing the growth opportunity in digital terrestrial television (DTT) across Africa and on investing in online content delivery options.

Our key objectives are to:

  • grow our ecommerce businesses  
  • build our pay-TV subscriber base  
  • invest in technology  
  • maintain a local approach  
  • provide quality service  
  • attract innovative and motivated employees  
  • balance profit, people and planet
