    BT finalises terms of EE acquisition

    Details Joseph O'Halloran | 05 February 2015


    Completing a drawn-out negotiation process, BT has finally agreed definitive terms to acquire fellow UK telco EE for £12.5 billion.

    EE TV - Tablet 2The UK's leading telco announced in December 2014 that it would make a dramatic return to the mobile business and was confident that buying the Orange/T-Mobile joint venture would enable it its to accelerate its existing mobility strategy whereby customers would benefit from services that combine fibre broadband, Wi-Fi, plus what it claims will be the UK's most advanced 4G network. EE currently has 31 million customers in the UK of which 24.5 million are users of mobile services and 834,000 from fixed broadband.

BT also expects to accelerate the sale of converged fixed-mobile services to BT's existing consumer and business customers and offer new services, using both companies' product portfolios, skills and networks. In all, BT expects to generate revenue synergies with a total net present value of approximately £1.6 billion.

"The UK's leading 4G network will now dovetail with the UK's biggest fibre network, helping to create the leading converged communications provider in the UK. Consumers and businesses will benefit from new products and services as well as from increased investment and innovation."

    Amazon Prime membership swells 53%

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 05 February 2015


    The Amazon Prime Instant Video service logged a 53% increase in membership in 2014.

    Amazon, which clocked a 15% increase in net revenue increasing 15% during the fourth quarter to $29.33 billion (and full year revenue that jumped 20% to $88.99 billion), said that the 40 million Prime members spend twice as much on the retail website - about $1,500 annually - as non-subscribers.

    "Customers are buying a lot more from us," said Amazon CFO Tom Szkutak on the earnings call, adding that the company invested $1.3 billion in its streaming content in 2014.

    He added: "What we see is customers who come in through our Prime pipeline for video for a free trial, those customers are converting at higher rates to other channels. We see that customers that are video streamers, even though we have high renewal rates, they are renewing at even higher rates than others. We see those people who were customers who were streaming have very similar purchase patterns on the physical product side as those who don't."

    MaxLinear to acquire Entropic

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 05 February 2015


    MaxLinear has agreed to acquire Entropic, for $287 million after the boards of directors of both parties unanimously approved the transaction.

    Headquartered in San Diego, Entropic is known for its work on the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) home networking standard, inventing direct broadcast satellite (DBS) outdoor unit single-wire technology, and developing a set-top box SoC platform based on the ARM processor, with advanced OpenGL graphics. Its silicon solutions have been deployed across major cable, satellite and fibre service providers.

    Entropic also holds a portfolio of approximately 1,500 issued and pending patents.

    The acquisition will broaden MaxLinear's analogue/mixed-signal business, including bringing new customer relationships in MaxLinear's most recent growth area, the satellite pay-TV market.

    "We are very excited about the opportunity to bring together two talented and largely complementary teams, as we increase our capabilities to solve the most difficult analogue and mixed-signal RF challenges in broadband markets," said Kishore Seendripu, CEO of MaxLinear. "We believe the scale and strategic benefits of a broader technology portfolio will enable us to accelerate our expansion into new markets more effectively. The financial benefits of the transaction should be immediately visible, as we expect non-GAAP earnings accretion in the first full quarter post-close."

    Ofcom kicks outs Virgin Premier League rights complaint

    DetailsJoseph O'Halloran | 05 February 2015


    UK broadcast regulator Ofcom has thrown out an action by cableco Virgin Media which attempted to halt the next bidding process for the TV rights to the English Premier League (EPL).

    Virgin's complaint prompted Ofcom to initiate an investigation under section 25 of the UK Competition Act, and the regulator opened a consultation as part of its review of the UK's pay-TV 'wholesale must-offer' services pertaining to the joint selling arrangements by the Premier League for live, UK audiovisual media rights for Premier League football matches.

    Further to this, on 28 January 2015 Virgin made an application requesting that Ofcom issue an 'interim measures direction', pursuant to section 35 of the Act, to require the Premier League to suspend the forthcoming auction of audiovisual rights to broadcast live Premier League matches until Ofcom had reached the next stage of its process in March 2015. Ofcom received submissions from the Premier League on Virgin Media's request.

    Yet having considered the application, and submissions from Virgin Media and the Premier League, Ofcom has decided to reject the application as it does not consider that there is an urgent need to intervene to delay the auction. It noted that there would be a 'significant' gap, of around 17 months, between the auction and the start of the 2016/2017 seasons when broadcasting of the relevant matches will commence.

    In the event that its investigation concludes that there is an infringement, Ofcom offered the assurance that it has the necessary powers to require the Premier League and Premier League clubs to make changes to arrangements for the broadcasting of matches within the time available before the start of the relevant season.
