BT leads the fixed telecom market in the UK with market share of 42.4% in 2016. The group owns the telephone network with presence across the UK. It provide mobile services in the UK, covering up to 99.0% of the population with 2G, 98.0% with 3G and over 96.0% with 4G technologies.

Key Highlights
Strategic acquisitions to improve its presence in the market
The company is focusing on inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions to expand its presence in the market. In order to enter into the mobile market, BT Group acquired EE in January 2016. This allowed the company to bring together UK’s largest mobile network along with the largest broadband network, providing more converged, innovative products and services.

Increase in operational expenses impacting the margins
The company has reported an increase in operational expenses in 2016. However it posted a decline in its margins. For instance, the company’s operational costs as a percentage of sales increased from 82.1% in FY2016 to 87.7% in FY2017. This impacted the company’s operating and profit margins. Although, the company has been investing substantially to expand its network and competitive position, it could not generate returns as expected.

Unfavourable political conditions impacting the company’s advancement in telecom sector
The unfavourable political conditions may impact the company’s advancement in telecom market. For instance, the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU) on 23 June 2016. Over the following two years the impacts of this decision will be minor until the terms of Brexit are settled. Post-Brexit, any changes in regulation between the UK and the EU will have a direct impact on the telecommunication industry. Reforms under the Digital Single Market (DSM) project, which were to review and revise the prevailing regulatory framework, are unlikely to be maintained
