    THE ART & SCIENCE OF VALUING A COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE PROVIDER

    Meridian Capital is pleased to announce the release of a new white paper, “The Art & Science of Valuing a Communications Service Provider.”

    Communication today is delivered via multiple facilities-based and non-facilities-based mediums – fiber, wireless, cable, copper, satellite, ISP, resellers, and tower companies.  There are many common qualities that sophisticated buyers review in determining the valuation for any individual communications service provider (“CSP”).  How the service provider stacks up against these qualities is the ultimate measure of that CSP’s value.

    The white paper, written by 43-year telecom veteran banker and operator, Pete Sokoloff, lists a matrix of multiple qualities affecting valuation, “We wrote the paper from the perspective of both an operator and investor. Operators especially should find the matrix useful in evaluating different elements of their own CSP operation.  Our hope is that this information will provide insights to improve the business’ outlook for better future valuation.”
