The Privatization of Anatolia National Telekom: What Did Happen?
Managing Value Expectations
Highlights Privatization attempt stalled in early 1998 –Political considerations: new elections in –Privatization idiosyncratic factors: more than 30 national telecoms were privatized during 1998/99. Turkey did not have a regulator yet. 1999: Focus on other, small privatizations. Defining regulatory and legislative framework. Installation of an embryonic regulator.
Highlights 2000 Appointed new financial advisors in June Deadline August 15, No foreign investor even purchased bidding documents. Five local groups did, but did not visit the data room. December 2000 –Strategic stake increased to 35% from 20%. –Strong management rights attached to the stake Day to day run by strategic investor. Strategic decisions by board of directors, where government has a seat. –Other deal-sweeteners: GSM license (approx. value of $2.5bn). Monopoly in wireline telephony until –New bids invited until mid-May 2001.
Highlights 2001 Road show was kicked off in January, but was halted before seeing London investors. Hard IMF deadline for mid-May postponed sine die. End of March Supreme Court ruled privatization as illegal. Privatization has to go through another legislative process. IMF is now thinking of a 51% public offering.
Foreign Investors Concerns Market timing, both Turkey and telecom sector. Capital constraints of likely investors. European telecoms spent $175bn in UMTS licenses. Serious doubts about corporate governance mechanisms. Low profitability per line compared to other telecoms. Low wireline growth expectations.
