Abstract

Telecommunications sector in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with one of the world's highest mobile penetration has been characterised by a classic duopoly structure. Etisalat, being the first operator, enjoyed the first mover advantage and Du, with its aggressive marketing strategies gradually inched closer to its rival. Over the years, both the operators enjoyed noticeable financial growth driven by strong economy, high consumer disposable income and a large growing young population base. However, the mobile penetration nearing saturation posed serious challenges to both the operators and industry disruptions caused strains on their financials. Amid such competitive and disruptive environment, it became necessary to closely look into their respective liquidity, profitability and solvency positions and determine which of them was better poised to generate greater shareholders' return in coming period.
