Oi S.A. Analyst Review of Recent Developments to Capture Growing Telecom Industry by BrokerBank Securities, Inc.

NEW YORK, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Oi S.A. (NYSE: OIBR) Brazil is in a unique position in the telecommunications industry with access to the considerable growth in mobile that has spread throughout the world as of late. Although Brazil is currently fourth in the number of mobile phones in the world, the country sports a relatively high 136 mobile phones per 100 citizens, which is higher than the three countries in front of Brazil (China, India, and the US). Further, mobile growth is only expected to increase as Brazil's middle class sees increasing wealth and therefore higher smartphone penetration. Presently, Brazil is the world's 7th largest economy with GDP of approximately $2.2 trillion annually. One of the companies that has and should continue to capitalize on the growth potential in Brazil is Oi S.A. 

Oi S.A. (OIBR), through its subsidiaries, provides integrated telecommunication services for residential customers, companies, and government agencies in Brazil. The company operates in three segments: fixed-line and data transmission services (i.e. local and long distance services); mobile services (i.e. voice, text, and data applications); and other services (i.e. internet access services, online advertising, television services, etc.). The company is one of the principal telecom service providers in Brazil with approximately 75 million revenue generating units (RGUs). According to ANATEL, the Brazilian agency that regulates and supervises telecommunications in the country, OIBR most recently controlled approximately 41.4% of the Brazilian fixed-line market and 18.6% of the Brazilian mobile telecom market. Further, the company's mobile network covers areas in which roughly 88.5% of the Brazilian population lives and works.
