Creating value in telecoms consolidation

Lessons learned – Benchmarks – Recommendations

Europe and in fact the world experiences a record wave of telecom merger activity. Mergers are generally expected to create significant value via the realization of synergies – not just in the Network and IT area (remaining the bulk synergy source) but also in Distribution and Marketing, SG&A and – more uncertain – in the revenue area.

Study on the Belgian Telecom Sector - 1st edition

Arthur D. Little released its first study on the Telecom sector in Belgium, commissioned by the five major operators of the Belgian Telecom market (Base Company, Mobistar, Proximus, Telenet and VOO), entitled ‘A New Deal for the Telecom Sector in Belgium’ at a seminar in Brussels, Belgium.

This study calls for a "Digital New Deal" on both a European and national level, based on a strategic long-term vision and the recovery of the European leadership in the digital economy. [...]
