Analysis of the Acquisitions by a Multinational Telecom Company Described in Latest Episode of Mergercast by Booz & Company

“Our analysis of one firm’s portfolio revealed significant potential to strengthen coherence by segmenting components into regional clusters,” Sabbagh explains.

One global telecom company found opportunities to strengthen its portfolio of acquisitions by focusing on their inherent capabilities.

Karim Sabbagh, a Senior Partner at Booz & Company based in the Middle East, describes this process in Episode 35 of Mergercast by Booz & Company, titled “Managing a Global Portfolio.”

“Our analysis of one firm’s portfolio revealed significant potential to strengthen coherence by segmenting components into regional clusters. In doing so, the firm was able to leverage inherent consumer, market and competitive capabilities,” Sabbagh explains.

“Moreover, it came to recognize the specific types of future acquisitions that can truly add value – laying the groundwork for a sound, competitive acquisitions approach going forward in which the whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” he continues.
