Etisalat DB, which has acquired a 45% stake in new telecoms player Swan Telecom has signed a 10-year tower sharing deal with the
hived off infrastructure arm of Reliance Communications. Both companies said that the deal could be worth as much as Rs 10,000 crore over this 10-year period. ( Watch )

This marks the second major tower sharing deal in the country in recent months. Earlier this year, Norway’s Telenor, which is in the process of picking up a 67.25% stake in Unitech Wireless, had signed a infrastructure sharing deal with the Tata-Quippo combined tower co.

Etisalat-Swan has mobile licenses to offer mobile services in 15 of the 22 telecom circles in the country. ET had first reported in January 2009 that Etisalat-Swan was in advanced talks for a 10-year infrastructure sharing deal with Reliance Telecom Infrastructure Ltd (RTIL) the hived off tower arm of RCOM. RTIL has about 50,000 towers spread across the 22 telecom circles of the country. RTIL is amongst the large infrastructure firms in the country after Indus Towers, the largest independent tower co in the world with over 103,000 units. Indus Towers is a three-way JV between Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular & Vodafone Essar.

While Etisalat owns 45% in the telco, the remaining 55% is held by several entities, including Swan's primary promoter, the Dynamix Balwas Group, a Mumbai-based real estate and hospitality business group.

“This agreement presents large cost optimization benefits with an asset light model, improvement in capital productivity and enhances RCOM group revenues by Rs 10,000 crores. The agreement with Reliance Communications Group is the first and the largest Telecom Infrastructure sharing including Towers and Transmission agreement of its kind in the Indian Telecom landscape and strongly complements Etisalat DB Telecom’s plans for India,” both Etisalat & RCOM said in said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

Commenting on the infrastructure sharing deal with Reliance Communications, the Etisalat chairman Mohammad Hassan Omran said, “As a new entrant in this dynamic market, this alliance provides us with key, strategic advantages that will ensure a robust, speed to market and cost-effective roll-out of services. Strategic alliances are an integral part of our plans for growth and Etisalat Group will always be receptive to such alliances which help to enhance the customer experience.”

The chairman of the Reliance ADA Group Anil Dhirubhai Ambani, said this ‘landmark agreement that will re-define the future of Indian telecom sector’. “This win-win agreement demonstrates Reliance Communications capabilities to enable the operators to go-to-market with a bouquet of telecom infrastructure services. This will ensure a faster rollout, optimum costs and a time to market advantage,” he added.

Earlier, RCOM held 9.99% stake in Swan Tele and had also given capital to the company in the form of debt. RCOM then exited Swan Telecom before the company was given mobile licenses by the Department of Telecom.

DoT may reconsider Etisalat DB-Allianz merger proposal

The Department of Telecom may relook mobile operator Etislat DB's proposal of merging new player Allianz Infratech with itself, as it

now feels that the deal does not involve sale of equity, which is barred for three years.

The DoT in October this year rejected a proposal from UAE-based Etisalat DB Telecom to merge Allianz Infratech with itself. It shot down the proposal on the grounds that there is a three-year lock-in on sale of equity by new operators.

"This arrangement appears to deal in no way with merger of companies which is in fact the issue of the present reference of DoT. Merger as well as demerger of companies take place as per the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. Accordingly DoT may give a re-look regarding their draft proposal. The lock-in period clause deals with sale of equity of person as a substantial shareholder", said the note.

DoT officials were not available for comment. Both Etisalat DB and Allianz Infratech got licences for offering mobile services in 2008. While Etisalat DB has licences in 13 circles, Allianz has licences for two circles.

Etisalat bought 45 per cent stake in Swan telecom earlier for USD 900 million. Later, Swan Telecom was renamed Etisalat DB.

According to the rule, promoters of new operators will not be allowed to sell their stake in the company within the first three years.

The DoT had allowed the new players to issue fresh equity in case they wanted to bring in new investors. A merger between Etisalat DB and Allianz would violate this norm, the DoT had said in an internal DoT note earlier.

Etisalat picks up majority stake in Indian JV, knocks at FIPB door

UAE-BASED Emirates Telecommunications (Etisalat) has acquired a majority stake in its Indian venture Etisalat DB Telecom by buying a

5.27% stake from Chennai-based Genex Exim Ventures for about Rs 380 crore.

The company has approached the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for approval of the deal, a government official told ET.

Etisalat DB did not respond to an email query on the development.

Little is known about Genex Exim Ventures, which picked up stake in Swan Telecom (Etisalat DB’s old name) in December last year. After the deal, the Gulf telco’s stake in the Indian company, held through Mauritius-based investment arm Etisalat Mauritius, will be more than 50%.

It had bought about 45% stake in Swan Telecom in September 2008, valuing the company at Rs 9,400 crore. The new deal, however, values the company just more than Rs 7,000 crore, reflecting a drop in the valuation of telcos, following the intense tariff war in the country and introduction of per-second talk plans.

Etisalat DB, headquartered in Mumbai, has the licence to provide services in 13 telecom circles, including Delhi and Mumbai.

Recently, it got the licence for national, international long-distance and internet services.

Telecom companies in India can have foreign shareholding of up to 74% with the government approval. The current telecom guidelines forbid new licence holders from selling stake in the first three years.

In June this year, the department of telecom (DoT) imposed a three-year lock-in period on the equity stake held by promoters of new telecom companies.

However, new players are allowed to issue fresh equity to strategic investors. When Telenor increased stake in Unitech Wireless, it did so through issue of fresh shares.

Etisalat, which has a subscriber base of over 80 million across 17 countries, will have just over 50% stake in the company after the stake buy. The other shareholders in Etisalat DB are real estate firm DBG Group, which holds a 45.73% stake in the company through Tiger Trustees (TTPL), and Delphi Investments, which holds a 4.27% stake.
