A financial investor planned an engagement in the consolidation of Indian mobile communications providers. Solon was asked to assess the magnitude of technical synergies in merging two mobile networks – in a country where up to seven million new mobile subscribers are acquired per month.
With the help of research and expert interviews, Solon developed a quantitative structure for the necessary expansion of Indian mobile networks – in just a few days. Based on the results, Solon calculated the expected savings on expenses and investments resulting from the merger of both networks.
Established within a short period, this appraisal gave the financial investor a qualified evaluation of potential in this – for him – new market. The Solon report served as an important basis for his offer.
