BT: The vultures circle
9 December 2021
BT is in rude financial health, with strong short- and longer-term prospects arising from inflation-linked price rises next year and the FTTP investment J-curve in the years ahead.
BT’s traditional investors are however understandably sceptical, leading to interest from non-traditional investors and in alternative structures.
Changing the ownership and/or structure of BT involves significant operational, financial, political and pension fund-related issues, making a change of ownership in whole or part no easy panacea.
