Australia - Industry - Consolidation

Synopsis

Since 2003 I organised three industry Roundtables, entitled: ‘Planning for Consolidation’. Thirty-five CEOs and other industry leaders attended these events. The first Roundtable was dedicated to the third-tier telcos, with fifteen representatives attending; on the second day, the participants encompassed a broader spectrum. This report provides an analysis of industry consolidation and provides an update of developments between 2003 and 2005.
