Multichoice Share Price rose by 15.5%

Shares in MultiChoice [JSE:MSG] rose by 15.5% in early trade on Wednesday after the entertainment company listed on the Johannesburg stock Exchange, Fin24.

MultiChoice, a spin-off from ecommerce giant Naspers, stood at R110.06 per share at 0957 GMT, just over 15% higher than its opening price of R95.50, giving it a market capitalisation of R48 billion ($3.47 billion).

Naspers hoped listing MultiChoice would help narrow a valuation discount between its market value and that of its one-third stake in Chinese internet group Tencent, and believed MultiChoice would fare better on its own.

MultiChoice’s market value was, however, still well below some analysts’ estimates of around $6 billion.

Claude van Cuyck, portfolio manager at Denker Capital, which holds Napsers shares and has kept its stake in the newly-independent MultiChoice, said the price was likely weighed down by its losses in its business outside South Africa.

Naspers CEO, Bob van Dijk.

“Today is a proud day for Naspers. Listing MultiChoice Group through an unbundling unlocks value for Naspers shareholders by creating the opportunity for them to own a direct stake in MultiChoice Group, a top-40 JSE-listed African entertainment group,” said Naspers CEO, Bob van Dijk.

The sugar daddy phenomenon has been listed as one of the factors that contribute to teenage pregnancy. This emerged at the presentation by the Department of Social Development of a study known as Factors Associated with Teenage Pregnancy in Gauteng.

Lack of parental guidance

The study suggests that issues of culture – where teenagers are subjected to family pressure; girls wanting to prove their womanhood and lack of parental guidance – also contribute to the rate of teenage pregnancy.

“In Gauteng it is basically the pressure in terms of the families. There’s pressure in the family such that children will want to go and enjoy themselves through sexual activity which results in pregnancy,” said Gauteng Social Development MEC Nandi Mayathula-Khoza.

The study surveyed some 500 pupils from across the province. Teachers and parents were also interviewed in focus groups to try and determine the main causes of teenage pregnancy.

It was found that some psycho-social factors contributing to the problem included youngsters seeking love as a result of lack at home.

“The teenagers are looking for love from older people who will actually provide them with money to buy stuff…,”said Mayathula-Khoza.

The document Criteria and Guidelines to become a SETA Accredited Training Provider sets out the requirements for accreditation.

  • The curriculum (design, content and learning materials) is aligned to the unit standards and/or qualifications.
  • There are suitably qualified staff (facilitators and registered assessors).
  • The learners have access to adequate learning support services.
  • The assessment methods and tools used to measure the requirements for the unit standard and/or qualification are fair, valid and reliable, and are used to enhance learning.


The main steps in the accreditation process to become a SETA Accredited Training Provider:

  1. The Training Provider determines primary focus
  2. The SETA Quality Assurance Management Division requirements are compiled by the provider
  3. The Training Provider completes and submits an online application form for accreditation

SETA Accreditation is defined in the ETQA Regulations as

The certification, usually for a particular period of time, of a person, a body or an institution as having the capacity to fulfill a particular function in the quality assurance system set up by the South African Qualifications authority in terms of the Act

There are Education Training Quality Assurance bodies (ETQAs) in different sectors responsible for the accreditation of providers. Training providers would be accredited by one ETQA on the basis of primary focus. The provider would need to decide which ETQA sector the provider falls within and then which are the NQF standards or qualifications that it wishes to provide. The ETQAs have specific provider accreditation criteria that have to be met.

A provider wishing to offer a full qualification or part of a qualification should firstly identify the primary focus ETQA to which it belongs and the qualification/s and the associated unit standards that are registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF quality assured by that ETQA. The qualification/s will list the quality assuring body responsible for the quality assurance of the qualification/s and the associated unit standards.



Against which programmes can I apply for accreditation?

Providers can apply for accreditation against unit standards and/or qualifications registered on the NQF and allocated to Services SETA Quality Assurance Management Division (SETQAA) for quality assurance purposes.

Length of time to achieve accreditation

We anticipate the accreditation process to take ten weeks. A provider will achieve provisional accreditation if the minimum (against SAQA’s eight core) criteria are met, their learning programmes are aligned to NQF registered unit standard/s and/or qualification/s and their assessors and moderators have been awarded constituent registration for the learning programmes to which they are linked.

Cost of accreditation

Services SETA does not charge for accreditation. To help providers understand the application for accreditation documentation, the SETQAA has trained a group of internal and external consultants who will sit with providers at their premises for a maximum of two hours to answer questions. The consultant will not complete the documentation for the provider, but will assist the provider in understanding the requirements of the SETQAA. There is no fee charged to the provider.

If you use an external consultant to help you achieve accreditation the cost thereof will be privately contracted between you and the consultant.
