Re: Buying Spree
Sure, Africa is a better macro bet, but Hutchison plays just in Asia and Europe. Li and Fok are betting on under-valued Euro telcos ahead of a recovery but in each case they've tried to buy a competitor to get market size. They have a pretty good track record in deal-making, which is why they're getting a lot of attention now.

Who's for sale in Europe?
Or, to put it another way, who is worth buying and willing to listen to offers?

Buying Spree
I would buy underdevloped markets like Africa where the opportunity for growth is phenomenal and valuations are fairly still fairly low.

Also due to the lack of national infrastructure the governments look at the carriers as the solution to many issues beyond telecom services, which means there's a massive opportunity for growth

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
