The Telecom landscape changes rapidly and Telcos move away from being a mere Connectivity Service Provider towards becoming a Digital Service Provider and this transformation is supported through further consolidation of the market. What plays a major role for the deal success of M&A activities is technology. Thus, the questions are: Where lie the opportunities to improve value creation in Telco M&A? How and where can companies better involve the Technology function into M&A Transactions to increase the expected deal value? And how will the future of Telecom M&A deals look like? Tim Schröder, Thomas Switala and Christiaan ten Berg worked together on this topic and give answers to those questions in their White Paper “The Future Role of Technology in Telco M&A Transactions”.
