BT’s strategy

The chief executive of BT, Allison Kirkby is working on cutting costs and reversing the British telecommunications company’s share losses. In May, announced a surprise dividend increase, sparking the stock’s biggest rally in 24 years. Kirkby also said his goal was to cut £3 billion (US$3.9 billion) in annual costs by fiscal 2029.

The wealth of Slim was built largely on the success of his telecommunications investments, beginning with the acquisition of Telefonos de México through government privatization in 1990. It acquired telephone companies throughout Latin America and expanded into wireless services with affordable prepaid mobile phone plans, building what eventually became América Móvil . An attempt to expand the business model to Europe, starting in 2013, was less successful.
