Reserve prices for the New Zealand digital dividend auction

We developed business and benchmarking models to value spectrum in the 700MHz band for the New Zealand Government. Our results were used as the basis of setting reserve prices in the digital dividend auction.

Valuing broadcast spectrum

We estimated the market value of spectrum suitable for television broadcasting purposes after a switchover from analogue to digital services.

Valuing a mobile business

To support a consortium of investors we developed a comprehensive financial model of a mobile network operator that was used to seek additional partners in the venture and in negotiation with the potential investment target.

Indefeasible right of use

For a major utility company we provided an independent assessment of a proposed indefeasible right of use (IRU) transaction.

Business modelling for high speed broadband

For a local Government organisation aiming to leverage economic development through broadband, a study on the business case for high speed broadband uptake and application by the private sector. 

Financial business impact model
