Opportunities and investibility of the Asian tower industry
What acquisitive towercos and institutional investors look for in their investments
At the fourth annual TowerXchange Meetup Asia, a panel of leading towerco executives and industry analysts from edotco, American Tower, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, New Street Capital Asia and IHS Towers, which is currently eyeing Asian opportunities, took the stage to discuss capital markets, towerco value proposition, valuations and diversification, the impact of MNO consolidation and more. With its mix of mature and new markets, Asia offers unique opportunities for towercos and investors alike. This panel was particularly timely as while American Tower is already a listed entity, IHS is in the process of an anticipated listing in 2018, and edotco is widely expected to do so down the road.
