    BT Profit Beat, Regulatory Reset Smooth Path for Next CEO

    BT Group Plc offered investors some respite from a string of bad surprises as Britain’s former phone monopoly searches for a new chief executive, reporting quarterly results that beat expectations. BT shares were on track for their first earnings-day gain in six quarters after the company reported growth in its consumer business and outgoing Chief Executive Officer Gavin Patterson sought to draw a line under his tense relationship with industry regulators. The carrier, trying to bounce back from an accounting scandal in Italy, has been trying to fix other issues, too: it’s tackled spiraling sports rights costs, mitigated a massive pension deficit and made overtures to improve ties with watchdog Ofcom.

BT is getting on board with a government goal for an expedited fiber rollout, to help Britain narrow the gap with countries like Spain and Portugal, after years resisting the call to speed investments.

    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.
