The central bank added that a domestic company in the telecommunications sector also issued shares to its parent company to finance the acquisition of a foreign company. South African telecoms operator Vodacom in December completed the acquisition of a 55% stake in the Egyptian arm of parent company Vodafone. source: South African Reserve Bank
