Network sharing and mobile operator consolidation of Indonesian telecom to be highlighted at the TMT Finance Asia 2016 conference in Singapore on March 9

Online PR News – 20-February-2016 – Singapore – Network sharing and mobile operator consolidation is predicted to accelerate significantly in the Indonesian telecom sector over the next 12 months, boosting the profitability of the sector according to industry experts speaking at the TMT Finance Asia 2016 conference in Singapore.

“Network sharing is already starting to improve capital expenditure to revenue ratios at the same time as data and internet revenue growth continues to grow,” said one Southeast Asia-based senior telecom executive, “It is not having a major impact yet, but over time metric consolidation will significantly accelerate the impact on profitability particularly where fewer towers are needed.”

Senior telecom, media and technology executives, investment bankers, investors and advisers from across Asia will gather to assess this and other critical regional investment trends and opportunities at the TMT Finance Asia 2016 conference in Singapore on March 9, 2016.

Telecom growth strategies, mergers and acquisitions and financing are all key themes at the event. “The consolidation of the telecom industry is extremely important because four or five competing operators in a single market leads to cut-throat competition which is ultimately bad for the industry,” added another senior telecom executive who is speaking at the conference.

Moody's Investors Service, a leading provider of credit ratings, research and risk analysis, has been announced as the host of Indonesia Towers and Telecom Round Table session at TMT Finance Asia 2016. This session will discuss key themes such as: how will capex trends effect the towers and telecoms sector? How successfully are telecom operators monetizing passive infrastructure? What impact will consolidation have on telecom and tower operators in Indonesia? and How will access to finance and market sentiment impact Indonesian telecoms in 2016?

Over 60 speakers have been announced for the event, including C-level representatives from Telstra, Axiata, Singtel, Ooredoo Indosat, Telkom Indonesia, DTAC, Reliance, Edotco Group, Irrawaddy, Q Towers, Dimension Data, BT, Kingsland, Schneider Electric, IFC, ING, BAML, Deutsche Bank, BNP Paribas, ANZ, Nomura, Credit Agricole, Sequoia Capital, IDG Ventures, Intel Capital, Linklaters, Roland Berger, Hardiman Telecoms and Moody's.
