Whereas the investment TPG has to enable locally is huge. Also TPG high bidding basically snuffle any potential price war in Australia.

TPG stock price tanks even before the battle begins.

IIRC Singapore market is roughly one third of SingTel profit and about 1/2 of their operating cashflow (subsidiaries may or may not pay dividend upstream)

And yes I think what Weijian says make sense. Competitors just need to breakeven for a relatively small business in Singapore to force profitability down for Singtel, and indirectly lower the heat downunder. Question is whether TPG can last

That's how I read it.

Singtel EBITDA S$1.221B/ Net profit almost $1B. EBITDA $185M from Singapore Consumer in last Q.
9 mth Singapore Operation ( Consumer, Enterprise etc ) is about 35% of it's FCF.

Singtel crown jewel in Singapore is actually Ncs and it's provision of internet/data services with Singapore companies, stat board etc. It has quite little exposure to the local consumer mobile is unlike starhub and m1

At risk of derailing this thread, I get the Singapore & Optus EBITDA data and the Singapore revenue composition from here:

https://www.singtel.com/content/dam/sing...inalv2.xls

I think it is right that their exposure to Singapore consumer is lesser % than STH & M1 but not sure if insignificant as CY09 implies

Update on the M1's "strategic review".

RE: M1 (formerly: MobileOne)
It seems that major shareholders of M1 are of the opinion that long-term business prospects will be poor with TPG's entrance into the market, and is trying to offload M1 before it becomes less profitable/valuable.

It has become clear that Axiata was not interested in buying more shares at the outset, and is instead selling.

Non-telco operators being attracted to this deal also tells us that demand for M1 shares are not strong.

Nevertheless, opmi shareholders may still profit if any transaction materializes.

RE: M1 (formerly: MobileOne)
Isn't it the case of the existing shareholders need $ to save their core biz?
Bidders are interested in M1 as they wants a cheaper and faster way into SGP telco sector. The long term prospects are bright with increase population and IoT.
Even non traditional telco company wants to come in and have a share of the profit.

There are two different perspectives, one from the sellers and one from the buyer(s).

Penetration rate will increase with the popularity of IoT and Singapore Smart City initiatives. Of course, uncertainties ahead since no one has a very clear picture how the IoT will pan out. In short, there may be a much bigger pie for one more player in Singapore in near future.

It is not a very straight-forward investment decision, IMHO.
