Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year. Microsoft had already tried to put Android applications under Windows 10 with the Astoria project, which has since aborted. The Latte project is probably powered by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). But Microsoft will need to provide its own Android subsystem for Google's OS apps to actually work.

IHS Holding is once again preparing the biggest African IPO in the United States

IHS Holding is back with its plans to go public on the US financial market, according to information reported by its reference shareholder Wendel, the French private equity firm. This is the largest IPO of an African company in the United States. 

IHS Holding is once again preparing the biggest African IPO in the United States

IHS Holding, the mobile telecommunications infrastructure group in Africa, has returned to its proposed listing on one of the American stock exchanges, according to a press release published on August 18, 2020 by Wendel. "We are still awaiting details on the dates, the number of shares that will be offered and the price of the offer," said the French private equity firm, which holds 21.3% of the company's capital.

We also learn that we are far from the operation itself, because the process will still have to be validated by the competent regulatory authorities in the United States. In February 2020, Bloomberg reported that investment banks Citigroup and JP Morgan Chase had been appointed as arrangers of the deal, which valued IHS Holding at nearly $ 7 billion. If this level of trading is reached, it will be the largest IPO of an African company in a US financial market.



The telecommunications tower manager has been keen to complete its IPO on a major financial market since 2018. A first project was suspended because market conditions were not favorable.

The company's main market is Nigeria, where there was uncertainty over the outcome of the presidential election in which Muhammadu Buhari took part.

It should be remembered that IHS has major stakeholders such as the South African group MTN and the American investment bank Goldman Sachs in its shareholding.
