  • Altice’s overall strategy is to acquire cable and FTTH operators with high-quality networks in attractive markets and create value by implementing operational improvements, leveraging economies of scale, pursuing in-market consolidation, and diversifying its portfolio of services.
  • Altice has achieved revenue and margin growth in its US markets after acquisition, but significant challenges remain for it to sustain itself as a successful disruptor.
