JOHANNESBURG, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Africa’s biggest mobile phone operator MTN Group flagged an as much as 90 percent jump in 2018 earnings on Thursday as the company continues to recover from a regulatory fine in Nigeria.
South Africa-based MTN said headline EPS would likely increase by between 80 percent and 90 percent.
The company agreed in 2016 to pay $1.7 billion over three years to settle a dispute over unregistered SIM cards.
The company is due to report 2018 results on March 7th.
