September 5, 2017 @ 18:30 - 21:30 UTC+1

Creating competitive advantages through acquiring strategic assets ? Insights from Telenet’s recent take-overs

Founded in 1994, Telenet Group has grown significantly towards 2,4bn€ turnover with 3000+ people. It is one of the big providers of fixed and mobile telephone services in Belgium. In addition, Telenet is active in analog and digital cable television. With a strategy to help its customers get the most out of life and out of business in a digital world, it has recently acquired a mobile operator in Belgium, as well as an internet provider in Brussels and the Walloon region.

During a keynote speech, CEO John Porter will highlight the buy side of Telenet’s recent take-overs: the contribution to strategic objectives, the acquisition process (including due diligence and negotiations) and the integration phases. Finally, he will conclude with his personal experience of do’s and don’ts in M&A, and the lessons learned. A panel of experts, moderated by Marc Cosaert (EY), will comment and debate. A networking reception will close the evening.

This evening is a “must” for business owners, board members, CEO’s and MBI/MBO candidates who want to gain more insights in take-overs and learn from the M&A experience of leading companies.
