Who are we?

Tofane Global is a global network service provider delivering secured connectivity and digital solutions to Communication, Cloud and Datacenter ecosystems.

Creating a global coverage offer through consolidation and partnerships

Tofane Global is named after Tofane, a mountain in the Italian Alps with 3 heights. Indeed, our ambition to become the independent partner of choice for our customers, employees and shareholders.

We believe that there is a need for a global coverage offer which will secure a one-stop shop for OTTs, fixed and mobile telcos and businesses. Therefore, Tofane Global aims to acquire participations in companies complementing by their footprint or their platforms, which can experience a significant growth in value through better operational performance, efficient digitalisation, and internationalisation.

We invest in companies with products or services that can strongly benefit from scale effects, in order to gain competitiveness via organic and external growth on their services platforms. For majority stakes, we seek an enterprise value over $100m and circa $500m.

Market

A fast growing market

null

Digitisation needs scale, coverage and speed

The demand for international communication services has strongly grown worldwide, mostly driven by Mobile Handsets for quantity, Internet Video for volume and Business Applications for latency. Tofane Global considers that digitalisation strengthens industry specialists, by giving access to larger markets, offering economies of scale and enhancing service quality.

VoIP, Data, and Mobile International Services form a global sizable market

Voice calls still represent 2/3 of the €33 Bn international connectivity market. Data & Internet captures 25% of it, leaving only 6% for Mobile Services, that is displaying a 2-digits growth (source: ADLittle). As a vital service, all networks require reliability and trust. Therefore, traditional services are surviving longer than one would have expected when Skype was born in 1995.

Consolidation and digital journey are the strategic drivers for mature players

Characterised by low capital expenditures and low labor intensity, the elder Voice market is quite fragmented: the top 25 players represent a 75% market share, leaving room for efficient consolidation. At the younger end, mobile services are provided by only a fewer players.
