Telecoms Market Review

Acuity releases our inaugural M&A Market Review of the Telecoms sector

Global spending on telecommunications services was estimated at $1.7 trn in 2017, an increase on 2016, and with hugely exciting growth drivers which we believe will fuel significant capex and M&A for years to come.

Drivers influencing the Telecoms market include flat-lining revenues for larger network operators, evolving standards and regulation, new and exciting technology, and an ever-increasing demand for more data. Acuity’s leading track record in the sector has enabled us to capture key insights as the M&A landscape continues to evolve.

Acuity’s Telecoms Market Review provides an overview of key themes within the industry over from 2016 to June 2018 (focusing on the developed markets) and is broken down into the following three sections:

  • Market Dynamics – analysis of key drivers impacting the Telecoms sector plus trading comparables and statistics for each subsector (Altnets, Contact centre & conferencing, Network Operators, Resellers, Telecoms Hardware, Telecoms Software)
  • Transaction Analysis – analysis of global mid-market transaction by value, volume and geography plus specifics of the biggest mid-market Telecoms transactions
  • Valuation Analysis – analysis of mid-market Telecoms transactions utilising EV/Revenue and EV/EBITDA multiples
