Today News Update

Twitter Inc. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey returned from a trip touring African startups ready to go back.

He said in a Twitter post last week that he’ll spend three to six months somewhere on the continent next year. Dorsey had spent much of November meeting with startups and people in the tech industry in South Africa, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Ghana.

But investors have appeared less convinced of the executive’s intentions over the following days. Twitter’s shares have declined since Dorsey announced his plans — down about 2.4% since Nov. 27 — and his other company, payments firm Square, has fallen almost 4% compared to a 1.3% drop in the S&P 500 Index.

The continent is one of the fastest growing regions for tech adoption thanks to a young population and an emerging middle class. People there have become early users of new technology, such as payments apps. Funding of African startups more than doubled last year to $1.16 billion, mainly driven by fintech investments, according to a report from venture capital firm Partech Partners.

Dorsey’s Square fits in well with Africa’s embrace of mobile payments, though the company doesn’t currently have an office there.

On Monday, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) traded with change of -1.59% on volume of 14550075 shares in the last session as compared to average volume of 20565111 shares.

On December 02, 2019 — Moody’s Investors Service (“Moody’s”) assigned Twitter, Inc. (Twitter) a Ba2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), a Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating, and a Ba2 rating to the proposed senior unsecured notes offering. Net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes. The outlook is stable.

“Twitter’s Ba2 rating reflects its growing niche position within social networking, benefiting advertisers through its reach and targeting capabilities, which has led to strong revenue growth and free cash flow generation,” commented Neil Begley, Moody’s Senior Vice President. “However, Twitter is small relative to its larger digital advertising and social networking competitors, and user engagement on social networks can be fickle.”
