    BT's IT Arm Pivots to Security as Big Tech Seizes Data and Cloud

    BT’s Radical Overhaul May Be Anything But

    It’s becoming clear that the role BT Chairman Jan du Plessis wants Jansen to play is quite limited. As much as du Plessis has paid lip service to letting Jansen be “radical” in transforming BT, as he told the Financial Times in an interview last week, he also seems intent on tying Jansen’s hands. With pension payments set to surge to 1.3 billion pounds ($1.7 billion) in 2020, it will be hard to fund that dividend stability based on current free cash flow predictions, according to Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Matthew Bloxham.

    BT Shares Soar as Profit Beat Smooths Path for New CEO Jansen

All of BT’s businesses except its consumer division are shrinking and the company is under regulatory pressure to boost takeup of faster internet services from its wholesale broadband network. BT shares rose as much as 10 percent to 265 pounds, the highest intraday since January.
