Economictimes Headline: Anil Ambani says RCom & Jio have virtually merged 

MUMBAI: A decade after the Ambani brothers split, Reliance CommunicationsBSE 16.76 % (RCom) Chairman Anil Ambani announced that his telecom company has “virtually” merged with Reliance Jio Infocomm, owned by elder brother Mukesh.

As far as our 100 million customers are concerned, as far as our 1 million retailers are concerned, as far as our employees are concerned, and as far as our vendors and partners are concerned, there has already been a virtual merger of the two organisations (RCom and Jio),” Ambani told shareholders at RCom’s AGM on Tuesday.

“Our spectrum is shared, our network is shared, our fibre is shared, our towers are shared, our voice is shared…,” Ambani added. He was responding to shareholder questions about why the two companies aren’t officially merging with each other despite numerous agreements around collaboration.

‘Two Committed Brothers’
RCom and Jio have pacts to share and trade spectrum. Besides, the two also have tower and fibre-sharing agreements. The two telcos have also synced their network operating centres, optic fibre service contracts and network maintenance functions.

“There are two committed brothers — Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani — both working relentlessly to fulfil the dream of Dhirubhai Ambani,” said Ambani.

Reliance Jio may have aided in bridging the gap between the Ambani brothers. At an RCom – Reliance Communications shareholder meet recently, Anil Ambani uttered good words for his brother Mukesh, inkling at softening relations between the two.

He also added that the association has given birth to a virtual merger between Reliance Jio and RCom. The Reliance Group had split after Dhirubhai’s demise over a feud for control. However, in 2005, they made peace.

Mukesh took reign over oil and gas and petrochemicals while Anil took control of electricity, telecoms and financial services. Anil further added that the company already had the spectrum they needed for 2G, 3G and 4G, plus spectrum trading and sharing with Jio,

The merger would help in beefing it up. He also added that the collaboration would bring down the expenditure substantially and help in surviving in such a competitive environment. Wrestling with the mountain of debt, RCom said that it was planning to pare the Rs.42,650-cr burden by up to 75% over the next one year. The debt would reduce by Rs.20,000 cr. Anil described the three-way merger to be the largest ever collaboration in the domestic telecommunication industry.

He added that this would create a formidable operator with the 2ndlargest holder of spectrum, aggregating 448 MHz across the 850, 900, 1,800 and 2,100 MHz bands. Not to forget it would also make RCom one of the largest and valued corporates with a massive asset base of more than Rs.65,000 cr and networth of Rs.35,000 cr, he said.

On Tuesday, Ambani announced that RCom would sell telecom assets, including spectrum, towers. Fibres and some real estate assets worth of Rs 25, 000 crore by the end of March 2018.

RCom had a debt of about Rs 45,000 crore as of FY17.

“This is a crisis of the wireless telecom sector and it has engulfed many, many people and many, many companies. If it is the mighty house of the Tatas who had to gift their business.
