JOHANNESBURG - Cell C said on Wednesday it had finalised its recapitalisation plan, which has been sent to the Competition Commission for approval.

“As it is a matter before a regulator and a decision has not yet been made, we cannot comment until the recapitalisation transaction has been successfully concluded,” the firm said in response to questions about the details of the plan.
