    Blackouts Hit Phone Networks, Spur Equipment Theft: Eskom Update

    (Bloomberg) -- Sign up to our Next Africa newsletter and follow Bloomberg Africa on TwitterSouth Africa has been hit by a sixth straight day of rolling blackouts as state-owned power utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. acts to prevent a total collapse of the grid after a raft of plant breakdowns. The company implemented a record level of cuts -- 6,000 megawatts -- late Monday, prompting platinum and gold mines in the country to halt operations.Highlights So Far:Eskom says there’s a high likelihood of cuts all week. The utility plans to cut 4,000 megawatts -- known as Stage 4 -- until late Tuesday.Producers including Sibanye, Implats and Harmony stopped mining operations and mobile-phone networks have been affected.The City of Cape Town warned that a return to Stage 6 could lead to water-supply interruptions.Rains that have soaked coal and caused flooding may continue through Friday.Read more: Record Blackouts Shut South Africa Mines as Recession Risk RisesHere are the latest developments, updated throughout the day. Time stamps are local time in Johannesburg.Battery Theft (1:30 p.m.)The constant outages are affecting the performance of batteries powering MTN Group Ltd.’s equipment, said Africa’s largest wireless carrier. The company spent about 300 million rand last year ($20 million) on batteries for existing sites and has 1,800 generators in use.The company is also having to spend more on security to protect its batteries, generators and general site equipment from thieves and vandals.“Load-shedding is seeing entire neighborhoods cloaked in darkness at predictable times, which is offering criminals greater cover for their thieving,” the company said.Limited impact at Gold Fields (1:15 p.m.)Gold Fields Ltd., which operates one mine in South Africa, said the impact of power cuts has been limited so far.“We have managed the impact so far by shifting load between critical activities to ensure our core mining activities can continue,” said spokesman Sven Lunsche. “If load shedding continues at Stage 4 or above for a prolonged period, however, and there are sustained interruptions linked to our production ramp up it will become more challenging and we will need to implement alternative mitigations to ensure business continuity.”Manufacturing contracts (1 p.m.)South Africa’s statistics office said factory production contracted for the fifth consecutive month in October, when Eskom implemented the previous round of power cuts. That adds to the risk of a second recession in as many years. Manufacturing accounts for about 13% of gross domestic product.Anglo Platinum costs (1 p.m.)Anglo American Platinum Ltd. said that the rolling blackouts may add to its production costs this year, which are already likely to exceed an earlier forecast.The company is engaging with Eskom to understand the technical constraints and see where it can assist, spokeswoman Jana Marais said separately.“We have standby diesel power generators in place, and all our operations have emergency-response plans which detail what should happen in the event of load-shedding, which includes the safe evacuation of employees, shutdown procedures and communications.”Vodacom connectivity (12:30 p.m.)Vodacom Group Ltd. said its customers around the country will be experiencing network-connectivity issues due to the Stage 4 load-shedding affecting its mobile phone towers.“Our towers do use batteries as a back-up but these do have limited power and will eventually fail,” said spokesman Byron Kennedy. “A notable complication with Stage 4 load shedding over consecutive days is that batteries don’t get enough time to recharge to full capacity.”Vodacom has recently put mitigation measures in place including additional batteries and generators around the country, he said.Cape Town water (12 p.m.)A return to Stage 6 could lead to water-supply interruptions in Cape Town, the city warned.“Load-shedding of this severity is likely to constrain our ability to provide water supply in the reticulation system across the whole of Cape Town in the usual way,” it said in a statement. “Residents should not panic, but please use water sparingly and prepare just in case they do experience a period of no water supply.”Platinum, palladium rise (10:30 a.m.)Platinum and palladium led gains among major precious metals after South African producers said they had stopped operations. Platinum gained as much as 1.2%. Palladium rose as much as 0.6% to a fresh record of $1,894.47 an ounce, closing in on $1,900 for the first time. The metal has rallied 50% this year amid tight supply.High likelihood of cuts all week (10 a.m.)Eskom plans to cut 4,000 megawatts until 11 p.m. on Tuesday as it continues to face a shortage of generating capacity. Breakdowns are at 15,200 megawatts, the company said in a statement.“The incessant rains continue to impact coal handling and operations at our power stations. The probability for load-shedding remains high for the rest of the week.”Rains to continue (10 a.m.)Heavy rains have soaked coal, which is used as fuel, and caused flooding at Eskom’s Kriel and Camden power stations, the utility said. South African Weather Service forecasts show rain in Mpumalanga, the province in which the electricity plants are located, will continue through Friday. Rainfall in Lephalale, near the giant Medupi plant, could reach as much as 25 mm (1 inch) today, forecasts show.Mines close (Earlier)Producers including Sibanye Gold Ltd., the world’s biggest platinum miner, recalled workers from underground and stopped milling ore after Eskom announced Stage 6 cuts on Monday night. No. 2 producer Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. didn’t start the 4 a.m. underground shift Tuesday and the company has stopped milling ore and shut its smelter.To contact the reporters on this story: Felix Njini in Johannesburg at fnjini@bloomberg.net;Prinesha Naidoo in Johannesburg at pnaidoo7@bloomberg.net;Loni Prinsloo in Johannesburg at lprinsloo3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Thomasson at lthomasson@bloomberg.net, ;Rene Vollgraaff at rvollgraaff@bloomberg.net, ;Rebecca Penty at rpenty@bloomberg.net, Liezel HillFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Cell C Creditors Hire Moelis, Lawyers to Push for Telkom Takeover

    (Bloomberg) -- Sign up to our Next Africa newsletter and follow Bloomberg Africa on TwitterCell C Pty Ltd.’s creditors aren’t giving up on a takeover offer from rival Telkom SOC Ltd., which South Africa’s third-largest mobile-network operator rejected last week.Senior debt holders have hired investment-banking firm Moelis & Co. and corporate lawyers Linklaters LLP and DLA Piper LLP to lobby for the Telkom proposal, people familiar with the matter said. They could block Cell C from pursuing an alternative recapitalization plan by forcing the carrier into liquidation or business rescue, said the people, asking not to be identified because talks are ongoing.A takeover by Telkom would return about 86 cents on the rand to lenders, while banks may have to take a deeper haircut if Cell C goes ahead with a transaction involving local investment company Buffet Group, they said. Creditors are also requesting that Cell C’s board act independently from Blue Label Telecoms Ltd., which owns 45% of the company, the people said.“Cell C and its various stakeholders, including the creditors, are working collaboratively to conclude a restructure that addresses all parties interests,” Cell C said in an email. “It is important to respect the confidentiality of these discussions. Information circulating in the public domain about these discussions should be viewed with a degree of caution. Cell C confirms that constructive discussions on the recapitalization are underway and will update the market on all material matters in due course.”Linklaters, DLA Piper and Moelis & Co. declined to comment, while Buffet Group could not be reached. Telkom said it hasn’t had any further communication from Cell C’s side.It’s not the first time Cell C has spurned advances from Telkom, which wants to combine the country’s two smallest network operators to better compete against industry leaders MTN Group Ltd. and Vodacom Group Ltd. After running into financial difficulties in 2016, Cell C opted for a deal with Blue Label.In July, Cell C missed interest payments and suspended future obligations, resulting in S&P Global Ratings cutting Cell C’s assessment to default. The company, which generates about 15 billion rand ($1 billion) in revenue, is struggling to repay about 9 billion rand of debt.Cell C agreed on an extended roaming agreement with MTN last month that will give it access to the network of South Africa’s second-largest wireless carrier. As part of that pact, Cell C will pay as much as 5 billion rand a year in roaming charges, from about 1.8 billion rand, the people said. Lenders haven’t been given a chance to review the deal, they said.(Corrects description of Blue Label stake in third paragraph and adds updated statement from Cell C in fourth paragraph for story published on Dec. 2)To contact the reporter on this story: Loni Prinsloo in Johannesburg at lprinsloo3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Rebecca Penty at rpenty@bloomberg.net, Vernon Wessels, John BowkerFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
