An Egyptian Billionaire Explains His Plan To Buy An Island For Refugees

An Egyptian billionaire provided new details about his plan to buy an island to receive hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and other conflict-ridden nations, in an interview that will air on CNN Sunday. Naguib Sawiris, who as CEO of the Cairo-based Orascom Telecom Media and Technology is believed to be worth at least $2.9 billion, spoke on an episode of "Fareed Zakaria GPS" that will air Sunday. The first step of his plan to resolve the refugee crisis requires getting the consent of Greece or Italy, from whom he plans to purchase the island. Since the refugees do not have visas, there must still be a country willing to process their entry. Sawiris appeared to imply that providing some kind of legal status for the refugees, even on an uninhabited island, would be harder than buying the island itself. “You can't just take people and put them on an island that you bought that falls under jurisdiction,” Sawiris told Fareed Zakaria, according to a transcript of the interview. “We need -- a passport control agency,” he added. “We need people to check them out. You need their data. You need customs.” The next step is to identify and buy the island from Greece or Italy. Sawaris estimates there are dozens of relatively uninhabited islands that could accommodate refugees, he told Agence France-Presse. The rest of the work, Sawiris said, he can handle on his own and is “very simple” by comparison.  Sawiris imagines building a temporary marina on the island to receive the refugees, as well as housing, schools and a hospital for the families to use when they arrive. Then he would give them jobs building a city on the island, because, he said, “this war is not going to end in weeks or in months. It may be years even.” (function(){var src_url="https://spshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=519059010&height=&width=100&sid=577&origin=SOLR&videoGroupID=155847&relatedNumOfResults=100&responsive=true&ratio=wide&align=center&relatedMode=2&relatedBottomHeight=60&companionPos=&hasCompanion=false&autoStart=false&colorPallet=%23FFEB00&videoControlDisplayColor=%23191919&shuffle=0&isAP=1&pgType=cmsPlugin&pgTypeId=addToPost-top&onVideoDataLoaded=track5min.DL&onTimeUpdate=track5min.TC&onVideoDataLoaded=HPTrack.Vid.DL&onTimeUpdate=HPTrack.Vid.TC";if (typeof(commercial_video) == "object") {src_url += "&siteSection="+commercial_video.site_and_category;if (commercial_video.package) {src_url += "&sponsorship="+commercial_video.package;}}var script = document.createElement("script");script.src = src_url;script.async = true;var placeholder = document.querySelector(".js-fivemin-script");placeholder.parentElement.replaceChild(script, placeholder);})(); Sawiris first announced the island plan on Twitter on Sept. 1. The tragic images of Aylan Kurdi, the 3-year-old Syrian boy who drowned with his mother and brother attempting to reach Greece, inspired him to act, Sawiris confirmed. "This was the moment of what I said -- I mean I cannot just sit like that and just do nothing, you know, and pretend it's not my problem," he said. Sawiris plans to name the island shelter "Aylan Island" in the boy’s memory. While Sawiris’ proposal might normally be dismissed as fantastical, the failure of world governments to address what the United Nations is calling the worst global refugee crisis since World War II has opened the door to unconventional ideas.  The European Union announced a plan Wednesday to resettle 160,000 of the mostly Syrian refugees who have arrived in Europe in recent months among European Union nations. But the EU’s new policy is unlikely to meet the scale of the refugee crisis. At least 350,000 people have migrated into Europe from January to August by official estimates -- a major increase from last year that is driven by the Syrian civil war and other conflicts. More than 2,600 have drowned in the Mediterranean Sea trying to reach Europe.   Germany alone expects to receive 800,000 asylum seekers by the end of the year. Sawiris commended his native Egypt for taking in Syrian refugees, but agreed with the growing criticism of the wealthy Arab Gulf nations, who have not granted asylum to Syrian refugees even as they fund rebel groups in the country. The Gulf nations “should really be pitching in or trying to help these poor people,” Sawiris said.

Egypt's Sawiris to diversify Orascom, invest $500 million in Egypt

Top Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris said he was ready to invest $500 million in Egypt and was diversifying his telecoms business into infrastructure, energy and transportation, sectors which need major funds in the country. Sawiris, a billionaire from a powerful Coptic Christian family, said the investment conference in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh had been a success but that the government would need to make efforts to follow up with investors. They need to have a pusher, and the minister of investment is a pusher," said Sawiris, 60, chairman and chief executive of Orascom Telecom, Media and Technology (OTMT.CA). He said the government should form a committee to firmly thrust the investment agenda forward and help revive Egypt's economy, laid low by four years of political turmoil triggered by the 2011 revolt which toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Вымпелком развивает сотовую связь в Бангладеш

«Дочка» Vimpelcom выиграла аукцион по распределению 3G-лицензий в Бангладеше, купив соответствующие частоты за $110 млн. Распределение 3G-лицензий в этой стране долго откладывалось, так как власти хотели продать частоты в полтора раза дороже.   Комиссия по регулированию телекоммуникаций Бангладеша (КРТ) объявила результаты аукциона по распределению 3G-частот. Победителями оказались четверо существующих GSM-операторов, включая компанию Banglalink Digital Communications. Ее владельцем является египетский холдинг Orascom Telecom, который с 2011 г. контролируется группой Vimpelcom (работает в России под торговой маркой «Билайн»).  Цена одного мегагерца частот в диапазоне 1,9 – 2,1 ГГц для всех участников конкурса была одинаковой - $21 млн. На торги выставлялись полосы частот шириной по 5 МГц. Banglalink выиграл именно такую полосу, таким образом, он должен будет заплатить $105 млн (8,16 млрд таков). С учетом 5% налогов общая сумма платежей, которую должна будет осуществить «дочка» Vimpelcom, составит $110 млн. 60% этой суммы должно быть заплачено в течение месяца, остальное – в течении полугода. Выигранная на аукционе лицензия будет действовать 15 лет. Также операторы-победители с...

"Sell Egypt"

As we noted in the previous post discussing the inevitable pre-civil war crack down on pro-Mrusi protesters, the only thing that matters, at least to the "developed" West, is how the overnight events in Cairo impact risk, i.e., markets and stocks. Moments ago we got the first take, courtesy of Noah Capital Markets. The conclusion: Sell Egypt.   From Noah Capital Markets Summary: Sell Egypt after strong rally, short CBKD LI, OCI NA. Increasing push to eliminate MB as deaths could have been avoided. EGX 30 down only , up 23% from end June lows, off only 1.5% today with death toll from the various pictures I’ve seen and people I’ve talked to at least 100. We moved neutral Egypt on July 3rd (“Morsi too legit to quit”), since which the EGX30 is up 4% and our preferred picks Orascom Telecom (GDR) and Transglobe are up 16% and 7% respectively. However, we now believe that things in Egypt have the strong potential of getting much worse, pushing through the positive aura that has comforted local investors hoping of a business-friendly environment and no MB in combination with pressured fundamentals. The nature of this morning’s clearing was predictably disproportionate, with live ammunition deliberately used. It isn’t too tough to clear a square, as the Turks recently showed in the widely-condemned clearing of Taksim square, where the casualties were more accidental than anything (ie tear gas canister to the face). It is unlikely we will see the same opprobrium against Sisi et al as Islamists are intrinsically difficult to support given their beards and perception that supporting them means support for the more extreme elements too (even if given infant mortalities today from tear gas inhalation etc) This clearly shows that the security forces had no problem provoking a confrontation and backlash that would allow them to suppress the MB once and for all, which fits with our view that the probability of their reintegration was minimal given all coups need to consolidate their position. This also fits in with the view of many secularists/liberals/revolutionaries in Egypt (even well-educated ones), who will say the army has no choice but to wipe out a portion of Egyptian society that they find revolting (ironic). State TV also calling on people to confront MB.. Going forward we will clearly see riots and likely an attempt by the MB to take Tahrir square as the only place they could legitimately say the MOI has no mandate to clear them from (!), but MB leaders are now all on the docket for arrest etc. The organised nature of the MB and their chunky presence in society (lets say 10%) means they can be far more disruptive than the 2011 revolutionaries, particularly given that tactics will switch to full-on civil disobedience and slowing the economy down with some extremist elements targeting the tourism industry. The increasing sectarianism (for want of a better word) on the street is likely to be very difficult for the security forces to handle, versus the relatively centralized and organised crowds in 2011. Given the strong rallies in key names such as CIB, TMG, ETEL etc from the OCI cash recycling and current valuations, we believe the risk is clearly to the downside, particularly as EGP liquidity continues to improve, allowing a huge number of foreigners and yields come in, pressuring bank net interest margins. For perspective of how bad it could get, the EGX 30 is up 57% from its end of 2011 low with the political situation even muddier than that point and a significant portion of the populace marginalized and increasingly angry. I find it difficult to see a bull case that would take the index up 20% from here before EGP liquidity likely eases in the next few months (as otherwise Egypt will get kicked out of the MSCI), but would welcome any suggestions. The currency is likely to remain stable given Gulf support, making T-bills a far more attractive option than equities, with Orascom Telecom now a bit too rich to be a safe hiding point. Those with Egypt in their index should move underweight here on the beta names such as COMI, TMG and ESRS. For those that can, CBKD LI and OCI NA offer good shorting potential here at a relatively low cost, please contact for more details. For the model portfolio we sell out of Orascom Telecom GDRs after their strong run, but maintain our position in Transglobe as fundamentally undervalued on a long-term basis with an adequate margin of safety. We substitute Bank Muscat for Orascom Telecom in our Top Picks.

Altimo отказалась от покупки египетского мобильного оператора Orascom

Подконтрольная Михаилу Фридману компания Altimo отозвала оферту на выкуп 100% акций египетского мобильного оператора Orascom Telecom Holding. Как пишет сегодня "РБК daily", компания не смогла собрать необходимое количество заявок. Altimo винит местного фондового регулятора, который не захотел продлевать сроки оферты. Аналитики же считают, что компания предложила слишком низкую цену на акции. Altimo выставила оферту на выкуп 100% акций египетской компании в середине апреля 2013г. Предложение действовало для Египетской биржи до 27 мая 2013г., а для Лондонской биржи - до 15 мая. Однако к этому сроку Altimo смогла получить заявки от владельцев только 15,9% акций Orascom, что ниже предусмотренного порога в 26%.

Altimo оставили без Африки

Холдинг Altimo, управляющий телекоммуникационными активами "Альфа-групп", не смог выкупить с рынка акции египетского оператора Orascom Telecom (ОТН). Он не планирует выставлять новую оферту на выкуп бумаг у миноритарных акционеров после того, как местный финансовый регулятор EFSA отказался изменить условия сделки. Отраслевые эксперты надеются, что в будущем компания все-таки продолжит консолидацию Orascom -- африканский рынок связи имеет большой потенциал с точки зрения наращивания бизнеса.
