LONDON/BRUSSELS, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Britain is able to manage the security risks of using Huawei telecoms equipment and has not seen any evidence of malicious activity by the company, a senior official said on Wednesday, pushing back against U.S. allegations of Chinese state spying. Ciaran Martin, head of Britain's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), said Britain had yet to decide on its security policy for national 5G networks, but that Huawei equipment was subject to detailed oversight and strict government controls over where it was used.

Britain has not yet made any decision on its security policy for national 5G networks, the head of Britain's National Cyber Security Centre said on Wednesday, amid a furore over the alleged risks of using Huawei telecoms equipment. Speaking at a cybersecurity conference in Brussels, NCSC head Ciaran Martin said equipment made by China's Huawei was subject to detailed oversight in Britain and the government had strict controls over where it was used. Its kit is part of a balanced supply chain with other suppliers," he said, adding that a policy decision would be made later this year after a government analysis is completed.

British security officials do not support a full ban of Huawei from national telecoms networks despite U.S. allegations the Chinese firm and its products could be used by Beijing for spying, people with knowledge of the matter said. Huawei, the world's biggest producer of telecoms equipment, faces intense scrutiny in the West over its relationship with the Chinese government and allegations of enabling state espionage, with the United States calling for its allies not to use its technology. Although no evidence has been produced publicly and Huawei has denied the claims, the allegations have led several Western countries to restrict its access to their markets.

A preliminary criminal investigation into an accounting scandal at the Italian unit of British telecom firm BT has alleged that three top executives of the group were aware of bookkeeping fraud at the unit, according to a document prepared by Italian prosecutors. The document, which wraps up the preliminary investigation, alleges that a network of people in BT Italy exaggerated revenues, faked contract renewals and invoices and invented bogus supplier transactions in order to meet bonus targets and disguise the unit's true financial performance. The closing of the preliminary probe is the final step before prosecutors press charges against the suspects.
BT Group (BT) seems to be a good value pick, as it has impressive value metrics, and is seeing solid earnings estimate revisions as well.
LONDON/MILAN (Reuters) - BT Group may have to cut the price tag of its troubled Italian arm as bidders are mainly interested in parts of the business rather than the whole division, which suffered an accounting scandal in 2017, sources told Reuters. Four bidders, including Telecom Italia (TIM) and telecom services provider Retelit, have been shortlisted to carry out due diligence on the business, two years after the accounting problems forced BT to take a 530 million pound write-down.
BT Group's outgoing CEO Gavin Patterson said he was handing over a company with the momentum needed to see through a major restructuring and withstand pressures ranging from demands from regulators to aggressive competition in consumer broadband. Philip Jansen, a former Worldpay chief executive, takes the helm at Britain's biggest broadband provider on Friday, eight months after Patterson launched a cost-cutting plan to tackle financial and operational underperformance.
The company said it has contingency plans in place in case of a no-deal Brexit, including preparations to protect itself against potential import delays and to ensure it will be able to transfer customer data to and from the EU. Analysts at Jefferies said BT’s outlook comments on uncertainties, including Brexit, suggested the company could face headwinds in the next fiscal year, despite a better-than-expected performance in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. This was ahead of analyst forecasts of GBP1.82 billion, according to a consensus estimate compiled by BT.

Energy, particularly midstream and refining, is the most attractive sector. Technology has also become compelling.
BT Group Plc., the company delivering the 2.3-billion-pound ($3 billion) project, has been pulling equipment from the Chinese tech giant out of its own core structure since the 2016 acquisition of mobile carrier EE, which used Huawei gear throughout its systems. While BT says it’s been an ongoing process to remove some Huawei gear and the ESN decision aligns with a long-standing corporate policy to keep the Chinese company out of the core, critics of Huawei will be emboldened by the step to limit its involvement.
Investors have expressed disappointment with the company's executive compensation after it gave more than 1 million pounds in bonus to CEO Gavin Patterson in a year when BT's stock has tumbled 30 percent. The company said it would look to take steps, including considering a broader range of performance factors and wider circumstances, when deciding on pay. "The board was naturally disappointed with the overall voting outcome," BT said in a statement, referring to more than a third of the shareholders at its annual meeting in July voting against the remuneration report.
