AlcaLu Lands $1B Deal from Reliance

Thursday January 17, 2013 03:51:51 AM

Yes, I most certainly did mean to ask who will pick up the deal for Northern and Western India -- my mistake. I have now amended the article. Thanks for alerting me to that. In terms of the value of the deal, well, that is a lot of operational cost with 4,000 staff, so much depends on the terms and conditions of the deal. Also, note that the value of the deal is set at more than $1 billion - quite how much more than $1 billion, though, I doubt either of the parties will know until 2020. What I think we can say with some certainty is that Alcatel-Lucent really needed to secure this deal -- the top management would have been taking a long look at the company's future in India if it had lost out to a rival (in my view).

AlcaLu Lands $1B Deal from Reliance

good to see the consolidation in terms of wireline, wireless, access, enterprise and so forth ! you probably meant as to north and west (not north and east) Going by what Reuters posted, the exiting 750 Mn contract for 5 years amounts to a topline of 150 Mn per year ! and this new 1Bn for 8 years means 125 Mn per year .. also the current manpower of 3000 will go to 4000 .. so additional 1000. however the geographies have reduced from Pan India to 2 zones, but the scope has increased manifold ! just some rough maths and rough scoping ! so is it a ++ deal or a risk for AlcaLu
