Telecom M&A activity increases across Central and East Europe

Telecom related merger and acquisition activity is increasing significantly across Central and Eastern Europe and a number of deals are expected to change the sector over the next 12 months.

Regional telecom and media leaders, private equity investors, investment bankers and advisers meet to assess the key strategic and investment opportunities at the TMT Finance & Investment CEE 2014 Conference in Warsaw on 30 September.
 
“M&A activity in the telecoms is especially buoyant in the CEE region, with over five billion euros of deals completed over the past year and several more in the pipeline,” says Dominic Lowndes, managing director of TMT Finance. “We are currently tracking government-led telecom privatisations in Slovenia, Serbia and Slovakia; regional private equity leader Mid-Europa selling telecom assets in Latvia, Hungary and Lithuania and a rise in mobile and cable TV consolidation discussions in key markets across the region.”
 
Strong buy side interest is coming from the major regional telecom operators including Deutsche Telekom, Telenor, Telekom Austria, MTS and Alfa Group of Russia, as well as a number of private equity investors.
 
In-market consolidation of the fragmented pay TV, cable and broadband markets across the CEE region and increasing appetite for new technology, and broadband related offerings is also driving deals, says Lowndes.
