Amcom Telecommunications (ASX:AMM)

Presented by Clive Stein, former CEO of Amcom.

The case study begins in 1999, when Clive joined Amcom, a small cabling business in Perth, that took advantage of the deregulation of the Telecom sector.  By 2015, Amcom had generated 1 billion dollars* of value for shareholders, when acquired by Vocus (ASX:VOC) in a highly public corporate battle with telecom giant TPG(ASX:TPM).

Set against the backdrop of growing market capitalisation, this case study rides the highs and lows of the dot-com era and concludes with one of Australia’s most public and strategic M&A deals.

This case study will provide insights into the influence of macromarket conditions on both strategic and operational aspects of the business, as well as learnings about authentic leadership, corporate strategy, mergers & acquisitions and the value of building a relentless sales culture and an empowered workforce.
