  • Setting reserve prices for an auction
  • Corporate strategic planning for an auction or acquisition
  • Negotiating licence renewal
  • Setting annual spectrum fees
  • Dealing with administered incentive pricing (AIP)


This two day spectrum online course will explain the commonly-used valuation techniques, covering:

  • Benchmarking
  • Business modelling
  • Technical valuation
  • Opportunity cost techniques
  • Company value technique


Working through real-world examples we will show how these are used in practice and how they can be used together in a “triangulated” approach.
