Debt Leveraging to be Key for Financial Success
- Industry participants in the telecommunication services industry are leveraging on historically low interest rates to issue additional debt to finance their plans. This has skewed the debt-equity ratio and debt/capital in favour of debt with certain firms issuing debt up to three-fourths of their total capital.
- As competition increases in a consolidating market, firms are relying on newer revenue models and cost control measures, such as infrastructure sharing and outsourcing services, to control costs.
- Shelf registration has been the most favoured instrument in the equity offerings market. In the fixed-income market, corporate debentures accounted for nearly half the fixed income offerings issued between 2008 and 2012.
- Industry participants have heavily invested in fiber-optic and 4G networks. This has ensured sufficient population coverage on one hand. On the other, this has ensured that relatively lesser funds are needed by industry participants for capital investments.
- An exponential growth in data traffic has ensured that all industry participants focus on data as a source of revenue. Firms have shown interest in investing in value-added-services and mobile apps to compete with over the top (OTT) participants.

A Note on Data Availability and Consistency
While all efforts have been made to ensure that data is presented for the same time periods consistently, importance has been given to finding and analysing trends. Keeping this in mind, time periods for charts might not match. Also, data for firms with revenue of less than $ xx million is unavailable. Hence, analysis is included for this range only where data is available.
