MCI WorldCom/Sprint Merger
An Analysis Group team supported our academic affiliate, Professor Robert Hall
of Stanford University, in conducting merger simulation analyses. These analyses were presented to regulatory authorities, including the U.S. Department of Justice. As part of this project, the Analysis Group team was asked to calculate the variable profit margins for different lines of business in the telecommunications industry, including Internet backbone, wireless and wire line long distance. This work involved using and understanding a variety of telecommunications accounting data and application of analytic techniques to those data.
