Telstra Corporation Ltd – Entered Into An MOU With NBN Network

Entered into an MOU with NBN network: Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NBN network to offer design, engineering, procurement and construction management for NBN via the group’s HFC footprint. The group already got two new contracts from NBN which are estimated to generate a first year revenue of over $80m based on the volume of work. This deal with NBN boosted the shares of TLS by over 3.63% in the last three months (as of February 10, 2016). However, the increasing consolidation of the smaller players might hurt the group’s potential growth prospects going forward. Moreover, management estimates only a low single digit EBITDA growth in FY16. We thus put an “Expensive” recommendation on this dividend stock at the current price.To read the complete report click here . To get your free report Click Here
