Summary

Table of Contents

This research service explores funding patterns in the telecommunication services industry within the EU. This includes firms offering alternative carrier services, integrated telecommunication services and wireless telecommunication services. The study analyses historical fund sourcing patterns and the options available with firms to raise funds, as well as the utilisation of the raised funds. It analyses various trends in the market and quantifies their impact to estimate the funds needed by firms, and suggests a break-up of funds across revenue ranges.


Executive Summary

Uncertainties surrounding the EU economy have affected the availability of funds for corporations. This has also tampered with the growth prospects of companies in this
market.

Industry participants in the telecommunication services industry are utilising historically low interest rates to issue additional debt to finance their plans. Existing debt has been paid to issue new debt at low interest rates.

Government regulations within the European Union prevent consolidation and also favour new market entrants. This has created inefficiencies, resulting in a fragmented market with firms that are unable to achieve economies of scale to realise profits. As competition increases, firms are relying on newer revenue models and cost-control measures such as infrastructure sharing and outsourcing services to control costs.

The EU regulations mandating a single market and the EU Digital Agenda are expected to enable regulations that could drive consolidation in the market, thus creating a necessity for firms to raise funds to acquire attractive targets.

The European Union lags behind North America in terms of next-generation-networks (NGN) penetration and coverage. As a result, firms would also need to raise funds to invest in strategic capital projects.

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.
