This IDC Perspective provides an overview and analysis of telecom and cable service provider network M&A deals, joint ventures (JVs), and IPOs disclosed in 2018. The document is limited to M&A deals in which the acquirer would take operational control of the target company and 50:50 JV dealsAccording to Ragupathy Vellappa, associate research manager, IDC's Worldwide Telecommunications Research, "The year 2018 witnessed a tremendous growth for M&As in telecom and cable service provider networks in terms of deal value. The top 3 deals disclosed in 2018 were more than $10 billion in size accounting for 76% ($136.2 billion) of total deal value, thanks to high-profile deals such as T-Mobile US-Sprint and Comcast-Sky. In 2019, increasing scale and achieving synergy benefits will remain the top priority for communications service providers to pursue M&As. There will be quite a number of outbound deals to be witnessed in 2019, primarily driven by the United States-based acquirers. At the same time, continuation of cross-sector convergence, advances in technology, and digital transformation will continue to drive communications service providers to add vertically integrated assets such as digital media, OTT video services, IoT, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and cloud computing technologies. At the same time, PE-backed investments will continue to flow in telecom space, primarily driven by availability of cheap capital on the back of low interest rates and carrier group's exit from noncore markets."
