    BT's Fundamental Value Is Overlooked

     BT Group BT is the incumbent telecom operator in the United Kingdom. In 2016, it bought EE, the country's largest wireless telecom operator, creating the only company that owns fixed-line as well as wireless telephone networks in the U.K. The U.K. has been slow to move to converged services, but we believe this acquisition will lead BT to push convergence similar to leading operators in several other European countries. BT's scale as the U.K.'s largest fixed-line, broadband, and wireless telecom operator provides the company with a narrow economic moat due to cost advantages.

    BT Shops for European Union Data Watchdog as Brexit Adds Hurdles

    BT Group Plc, Britain’s former phone monopoly, is seeking a new data protection base in the European Union as Brexit adds another layer of complexity to the movement of data across borders. “As part of our Brexit scenario planning we are exploring a range of potential options for a lead European country for ensuring compliance with EU data regulations,” a BT spokeswoman said by email. The transfer of personal data between the European Union and the U.K. -- anything from a consumer’s seat preferences on an airplane to billing information -- has been a top Brexit concern for British businesses with operations across the bloc.

    UK regulator Ofcom concerned by BT's involvement in Openreach's planning process

    In a report on Thursday, Ofcom said the progress toward the legal separation of BT and Openreach has been "broadly satisfactory", but some steps were yet to be completed such as the transfer of Openreach employees to the new Openreach Ltd due to complexities with BT's pension scheme. Last year, BT resolved a two-year broadband battle by bowing to industry and regulatory pressure and agreeing to legally separate its national network, as the government sought to deliver faster broadband speeds for millions.

    Rolls-Royce cuts 4,600 jobs at "pivotal moment" for business

    Rolls-Royce is to cut 4,600 jobs over two years in the latest attempt by boss Warren East to reduce costs and complexity and make Britain's best known engineering company more profitable and dynamic. East, a softly-spoken former tech boss, has overhauled the 134-year-old Rolls since he took charge in 2015 but the new cuts come as the group grapples with an aero-engine problem that has grounded planes and angered clients. The announcement, which East said is not linked to the Trent 1000 engine issue, marks the biggest round of job cuts since the company had to retrench during the aviation crisis that followed the 9/11 attacks in the United States in 2001.

    U.K. stocks slide as tensions flare up ahead of G-7 meeting

    Meanwhile, BT Group PLC was in focus on news that the telecom company’s chief executive, Gavin Patterson, will be leaving the company. U.K. and continental European stock indexes (^STOXX)(^GDAXI) were splashed in red as tensions flared-up Thursday between U.S. President Donald Trump and American allies Canada and the European Union before the start of the G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, on Friday. The sniping was unnerving to investors as fears of a global trade war have been running through financial markets since March, when Trump said he’d slap tariffs on aluminum and steel imported into the U.S., moves he claimed would protect U.S. steelmakers.

    BT boss Patterson steps down after investors lose faith

    BT Group's Chief Executive Gavin Patterson will step down this year after its chairman said a new leader was needed to restructure Britain's biggest broadband and mobile provider. Patterson, who has run BT for almost five years, announced 13,000 job cuts last month in an attempt to get to grips with a host of problems including intense competition, an underperforming IT services unit, a huge pension deficit and criticism of its broadband plans. Jan du Plessis, former chairman of mining group Rio Tinto who took the same role at BT last November, said the board supported Patterson's strategy but it did not have confidence in his ability to see it through.

    Patterson's BT Tenure Ends After Regulator Fight, Stock's Tumble

    Investors in BT Group Plc watched their investments shrink about 60 percent and decided it was enough. Chief Executive Officer Gavin Patterson, who will leave the company later this year after almost five years in charge, couldn’t reverse a share price slide that started about 2 1/2 years ago. Declining earnings, a prolonged dispute with the telecom regulator over broadband rates, network coverage and control, as well as an accounting scandal in Italy kept piling on hurdles, until the executive’s time was up.

    Dumping an Unpopular Boss Doesn't Fix Everything

    Gavin Patterson, the boss of BT Group Plc, came up with a shiny new strategy last month but there’s probably no way he could have won over dubious investors after a long period of poor performance. Chairman Jan du Plessis may look capricious, having endorsed his CEO alongside the poorly received strategic reset. Whoever steps into Patterson's role – Tele2 AB's Allison Kirkby and Severn Trent Plc's Liv Garfield and are potential candidates – shouldn't feel beholden to the roadmap.

    BT Chief Gavin Patterson to Depart After Strategy Reset Flop

    BT Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Gavin Patterson is leaving almost five years into his term at the helm of the former U.K. phone monopoly, after a strategy reset last month failed to win over investors. Patterson has been seeking to turn around BT since since an accounting scandal in Italy and profit warning in early 2017 and investors were caught off guard when he downgraded BT’s profit outlook in May, blaming regulated price cuts for a forecast for no growth until 2021. Chairman Jan du Plessis, who had backed Patterson at the strategy update, on Friday said shareholders had convinced him the executive’s time was up.
