Valuing the Spectrum training course

Location: Central London
Date: 17/10/2023 - 18/10/2023

This course is next being offered as a hybrid course in London on 17-18 October 2023.

Putting a value on different bands is an essential skill for everyone with a professional interest in the spectrum world.

Whether you work for a regulator, government agency or an operator, you are likely to be involved in valuing the spectrum in some form. It is an essential part of these common activities:

  • 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 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.

The upcoming online course starts at 9 am Dubai/ 1 pm Singapore / 2 pm Japan / 4 pm Sydney  making it ideal for online participants in the Middle East and Asia.
