As the telecommunications industry matures, more companies are struggling to grow during a time when they feel pressure to upgrade and roll out their networks. These companies are finding the answer for further value creation in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and joint ventures.
In the past year, there has been a global vibrant M&A scene resulting in transactions within the TowerCo industry, creating benchmarks for TowerCo’s consolidation. These deals to spin off existing, build new or combine infrastructures can create synergies for better infrastructure utilization. These transactions significantly expand the buyers’ footprint in the regions and position them to take even better advantage of the growth opportunity as mobile technology is deployed to serve millions over the coming years.
When exploring the deal details, numerous questions arise:
- Do the inventory reports given to the potential buyer, reflect the actual field inventory?
- When combining infrastructure assets, is the buyer maximizing the ROI per asset?
- How do the TowerCos maintain trust with their customers, Telcos? Is the billing based on accurate, detailed source of information? or is the billing process a negotiable one?
In M&As, tower companies must depend more than ever on a rapid, accurate and in-depth understanding of their new asset base to be successful and maintain profitability.
