Strategy analysis of options and synergies from operator groups´ merger

A major mobile infrastructure vendor was investigating how to address the upcoming merger of two major operator groups. The infrastructure vendor needed to reorganize its account structure, understand the potential strategy of the emerging new player as well as take initiative to gain from the merger.

Northstream assessed potential synergies from an operational point of view and made the following analysis:

• Complete financial and operative snapshot of all the operating companies of the two groups
• Assessment of OPEX synergies from a group perspective
• CAPEX synergies
• Full service portfolio review to understand potential synergies between markets and pick-up

The second step and recommendations concluded how the vendor could support the various potential areas of synergies in order to increase sales and form a strong tie to the new emerging operator group.
