Leading mergers and acquisition experts from investment banks, African telecom operators, private equity investors and global law firms would be meeting in London on June 7 to debate the next wave of deals in the African telecom sector.

Telecom heads from Barclays Capital, Citigroup, Clifford Chance, Goldman Sachs, Lazard and Standard Bank are featuring on the M&A Panel which forms a key session at the TMT Finance & Investment Africa Conference (www.tmtfinance.com/africa). Now in its third year, the conference brings together the major players from the telecom, finance and advisory community in a series of leadership panel debates and keynotes.

This African Telecoms M&A Panel is expected to be especially important this year as industry experts predict a surge in investment into African telecoms over the next 12- 18 months, and a shift in the type of deals taking place. The African telecoms market is ripe for consolidation but deals are complex and will take significant structuring say experts.
