Australia - Analysis telco market - Forecasting Developments - 2003


This report was archived in 2005. A Roundtable with financial analysts took place in November 2003. I think this was possibly the best event I have organised to date. Top-level presentations were enjoyed by the high quality audience and the participants took part in a very worthwhile exchange of knowledge and information. Enclosed is a summary of that event. Although a full telco recovery is still some distance away, there are continuing signs that the market has bottomed out. Company profits are up and real growth has returned to the market – this despite government policies and regulations.
