Research and Markets: Funding Patterns in the North American Telecommunications Services Industry

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kqlgwt/funding_patterns) has announced the addition of the "Funding Patterns in the North American Telecommunications Services Industry" report to their offering.

The study deals with the funding patterns in the North American telecommunication services industry. This includes firms offering alternative carrier services, integrated telecommunication services, and wireless telecommunication services. After the introductory slides, the study begins with the analysis of historical fund sourcing patterns that analyse various options available with firms to raise funds. The next section analyses how the funds raised have been deployed by firms. The study then analyses various trends in the market and quantifies their impact to estimate how much funds would be needed by firms. Based on this estimation, the study moves on to suggest a possible break-up of funds across revenue ranges.

Objectives

- Analyse the funding patterns in the North American telecommunication services industry

- Identify the key sources of funding in the industry, based on transactions across revenue ranges and across years

- Analyse historical deployment of funds across line items, such as capital expenditures, debt retirement, stock repurchase, and dividends

- Analyse market trends and quantify impact in terms of funds needed

- Estimate the distribution of funds needed across transaction types and revenue ranges

Who Will Benefit?

- Telecommunication service providers

- Private equity firms and investors

- Venture capital firms and investors

- Fund managers

- Retail investors

- Sovereign wealth funds and managers

- Hedge fund firms and managers

- Insurance funds and managers

- Other members of the investing community

Highlights

- Industry participants in the telecommunication services industry are leveraging on historically low interest rates to issue additional debt to finance their plans. This has skewed the debt-equity ratio and debt/capital in favour of debt with certain firms issuing debt up to three-fourths of their total capital.

- As competition increases in a consolidating market, firms are relying on newer revenue models and cost control measures, such as infrastructure sharing and outsourcing services, to control costs.

- Shelf registration has been the most favoured instrument in the equity offerings market. In the fixed-income market, corporate debentures accounted for nearly half the fixed income offerings issued between 2008 and 2012.

- Industry participants have heavily invested in fiber-optic and 4G networks. This has ensured sufficient population coverage on one hand. On the other, this has ensured that relatively lesser funds are needed by industry participants for capital investments.

- An exponential growth in data traffic has ensured that all industry participants focus on data as a source of revenue. Firms have shown interest in investing in value-added-services and mobile apps to compete with over the top (OTT) participants.
