In 2015, the company was sued by 20 of its distributors following the lack of agreement between the two parties on a new commission structure. The company also informed its distributors that the 36-month participation in the turnover of SIM cards, activated before February 1, 2017, would end “immediately after the entry into force of the new system”. “The agreement we have with Airtel as a direct sales agent (DSA) is to perform direct activations with our sales and marketing teams of their routes and pay us in exchange for three years between 8 and 9 percent of the consumption of this line,” said Idle Ibrahim, a director of Ideal Consultants, one of the nine companies involved in the revenue participation dispute.
