Naspers shares

Background of Naspers

  • Established in South Africa in 1915, Naspers Limited is a media, internet and entertainment powerhouse with a footprint in more than 130 countries, and is one of the largest technology investors in the world today. The group’s principal operations are in e-commerce, video entertainment, print and online media.

  • Naspers shares are for sale through a primary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), as well as an American Depository Receipt listing on the London Stock Exchange. Naspers operations span across all six continents, reaching all major markets. The group owns market leading brands such as Multichoice, Mnet, OLX, PayU, and Mweb.

  • The group is organised into six business areas: Classifieds, Payments, B2C, Ventures, Video Entertainment, and Media. It has also decided to buy sizable investments in listed Chinese media company Tencent and Russian social networking platform

  • Naspers history lies in print media, and this section of the business has since grown to incorporate more than 60 magazine titles and 60 newspapers. The news and print businesses have been organized under the umbrella brand Media24, which also has interests in digital media, eCommerce, book publishing and print distribution.

Naspers Shares Growth Driver

  • In 2016, Naspers became only the fourth JSE-listed company with a market value of more than R1 trillion and is now the biggest local share on the JSE, accounting for 13.2% of the bourse’s value. Naspers share price has been one of the strongest on the bourse.

  • The company has achieved good results from its large international investments, particularly its 34% stake in Chinese company Tencent. Having already dominated the South African media landscape, the group is also benefiting from the weaker rand due to its international diversity.

  • The latest financial data reflected good progress across Naspers video-entertainment and internet platforms. The company further bolstered its position in most markets by aiming to buy into people, technology, content and marketing. This led to Naspers share price growth well ahead of competitors.

  • In 2015, Naspers core headline earnings, a measure the company views as a reliable indicator of its sustainable operating performance, grew 30% to R11,2 billion. This was mainly due to contributions from Tencent and some of its profitable eCommerce businesses.

  • During the period of March 2015 Naspers Media24 managed to successfully list their printing business, Novus Holdings, raising R1,1 billion capital with this listing.

Naspers Group Investor Tip

  • Naspers shares have continuously been one of the JSE stocks, outperforming the all share index by almost 300%. Investors who decided to buy R 10 000 worth of Naspers shares in 2001, would be sitting on a return of more than R 1 million.

  • The live online stocks chart shows an astronomical rise in Naspers share price, and this growth is expected to continue as the company makes more international acquisitions and investments. There is a forecast that profit growth will slow slightly due to unstable conditions in sub-Saharan Africa, but the media giant has all the clout and resources needed to continue attracting investors to buy the shares.
