Johannesburg - Shares of Absa Group [JSE:ASA] extended gains after the bank said it would buy Barclays Africa's operations in a R18.3bn deal. 

Absa's purchase of Barclays African assets gives it a toehold on the continent, opening up a new lucrative market at which it can compete against bigger rivals such as Standard Bank Group [JSE:SBK] and FirstRand [JSE:FSR].

Absa shares are up 3.02% at R154.01 after soaring more than 5% on Thursday.
