Today, SPENN has entered into an agreement with the intention to establish a company that will offer SPENN products and services in Nigeria.
“Our intention is to build a Nigerian SPENN organization to penetrate the largest market on the African continent,” says Jens Glaso, CEO of SPENN Technology.
Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa with an estimated 216 million people. At the current growth rate, Nigeria is adding approximately 5 million people to its population every year.
“We will work relentlessly to make Nigeria a huge market for SPENN. We are keen on exploring the opportunities for SPENN products and services in this great nation, and we are pleased to have started the process of entering Nigeria. Building on experiences and results in our current markets, we are now able to plan a roll-out with larger public disbursement partners,” says Glaso.
SPENN operations in Nigeria will be set up as a joint venture with Nigerian partners. SPENN Technology will have 70 per cent ownership of SPENN Nigeria.
When the joint venture is established, it will search for an appropriate bank partner and apply for approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria and other relevant Nigerian authorities.
“This could take 1-2 years, but we hope that our local partners will be able to speed up the process,” says Karl-Anders Grønland, Chairman of the Board of SPENN Technology.
