Australia - Structural Separation and the Private Equity Market


This report has been archived. It becomes increasingly doubtful that Telstra will get the regulatory holidays it is asking for, and the next best step for its shareholders could well be for the incumbent to increase its value through structural separation; creating new companies that could attract higher values. Private equity companies around the world are interested in companies like Telstra and during 2007/08 we might see some interesting developments, similar to those that are currently taking place in Europe.
