Recently, GTL had acquired Singapore based Redington Group for a total consideration of $95 million. GTL's business lines included enterprise network solutions, managed services, software development, systems integration, e-Business solutions, turnkey telecom infrastructure projects, and customer contact solutions (See Exhibit: I for more details).

Overview of Risks

The market for technology stocks had been extremely volatile in recent times. GTL believed the following risks were important:

  • Loss of major customers;
  • Significant changes or slowdowns in the funding and spending patterns of GTL's current and prospective customers;
  • The departure of key personnel;
  • Announcements by competitors of significant contracts, new products or product enhancements;
  • Failure by GTL to meet its product milestones;
  • Acquisitions, distribution partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
  • Changes in market valuations of internet companies, networking and telecommunications companies

Concentration Risks

Like any other business, GTL's business might suffer from risks arising out of lack of diversification. The risks included:

  • Service concentration
  • Client concentration
  • Geographical concentration
  • Vertical domain concentration
