Mobile operators and funding to be discussed at Asia business and investment conference


The TMT Finance Investment Asia 2010 business conference, taking place 3-4 November in Singapore, will see a discussion focusing on the funding and the routes available to raising capital internationally for mobile operators and mobile telecoms across Asian markets.

Corporate finance experts will be debating the outstanding opportunities in equity and debt fundraising activity across the region, including IPOs, high yield bonds and mergers and acquisitions. The finance and investment conference will feature expert speakers from leading investment banks ANZ, Barclays Capital, Citigroup, DBS Group, JP Morgan, RBS and Standard Chartered.

Dominic Lowndes, managing director of BroadGroup TMT Ventures, the conference organizer commented, “With equity and debt capital markets fragile, mobile operators need to assess all available routes to raising capital internationally.”

“Financing activity in Indonesia and India is especially resurgent with towers sales, imminent operator consolidation and infrastructure roll out generating a significant need for funding over the next twelve months. 3G and 4G license auctions in several Asian markets also require substantial capital,” Dominic continued.

The business conference will also feature executives from leading telecom and mobile operators Singtel, Maxis, STC International, Etisalat, Telenor, Tata Communications and Telstra, private equity investors including Apax, Quadrangle and SBI Macquarie, and international law firms Herbert Smith and Milbank.
