Company Report

Cost-Cutting and Pricing Discipline Should Drive Cash Flow at Millicom

Millicom is a collection of telecom businesses serving nine countries in Latin America. Economic and political challenges in certain markets, combined with a weak Colombian peso, have hindered recent financial results. However, we expect that continued smartphone and broadband adoption, attractive competitive dynamics in several countries, and cost-cutting efforts will allow the firm to generate solid cash flow in the coming years.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Millicom holds strong wireless market share across nine Latin American countries with a combined population of 120 million people and owns high-quality cable networks that can provide broadband to 13 million homes and businesses in the region.

Bears

Millicom’s recent acquisitions have pushed its debt load much higher than historical levels. This debt amplifies the economic, political, and competitive risks the firm faces.
