Report Summary:

Vimpelcom’s planned acquisition of most of telecoms assets of Weather Investments (Orascom Telecom and WIND Italy) announces its arrival as one of the major global mobile operators. Assuming it can navigate a tricky Algerian government and potential internal conflict, the deal finally helps to deliver volume to the group’s business beyond the relatively mature Russia and Ukraine. Perhaps more interesting than Vimpelcom’s rise up the global mobile rankings is the fall of MEA-based operators. Weather joins Zain in concluding that non-MEA players value assets in one of the last growth regions more highly than it does – only MTN is bucking that trend, though has not lacked suitors recently. Strategy Analytics expects MTN will not be short of suitors over the next few years either.
