Saved a multibillion-dollar infrastructure investor millions of dollars in regulatory fees and supported expansion into the sub-Saharan market.
A global infrastructure company expanded its African operation by investing $1 billion in Nigerian. Understanding that such an investment should benefit from incentives such as tax holiday. Although the Nigerian government had suspended the investment incentive after the 2015 elections.
Our team mapped out key stakeholders and influencers in government to dig deeper the government’s decision to suspend the investment incentive – tax holiday. Further to the deep dive, we developed a strategic engagement plan to bring to light the client’s long-term investment plans and its economic impact on the country’s telecommunication sector.
Our strategic support and engagement resulted to the client securing a 5-year tax holiday which saved them over $25 million.
With over 32 years of combined expertise across various sectors, we create tailored solutions to business challenges with measurable results.
