2000年10月25日にAT&Tが発表した4分割案

Family Of Four Separate AT&T Companies


米国のAT&Tは2000年10月25日に、収益の足かせになりそうな個人向け長距離電話事業の切り離し、日本やヨーロッパでは注目を集めているが、米国では需要が少なかった携帯電話、買収など派手な動きで注目されたCATV事業を順次切り離しを2002年までに完了し、法人向け長距離通信に集中するという事業4分割計画を発表した。衝撃が、地球上を駆け巡った1982年から1983年にかけて実施されたAT&T分割以来の分割であり、前回の場合は独占的通信事業に対する、国策的分割であったが、今回の場合は企業存続のための分割といえる。この動きは今後、日本のNTTにも影響を与える可能性があり、1982年から1983年にかけて実施されたAT&T分割の時も多くの評論家のコメントが錯綜し、多くの書籍が出版されたことから、ここにAT&Tのリリース全文を掲載する。経済産業省は2002年9月19日に、新しい業績報告書に関する調査研究−米・英主要企業のアニュ アルレポートの開示状況とインタビュー調査−を公開した。詳細情報はURL(http://www.meti.go.jp/kohosys/press/0003158/)で知ることができる。米国通信大手のSBC Communications社は2005年1月31日に、長距離通信最大手のAT&TをUS$160億で買収し、ネットワークの効率化にともない、セールス部門(sales department)で1700人、事務オペレーション部門(business operations)で3400人、広告・広報部門(advertising and public relations)などで2600人、そのほか5125人の削減で、約1万2800人の人員削減を実施することを、2005年2月1日に行ったアナリスト・ミーティングで発表した。 SBC Communications社はAT&Tの分割で生まれた地域通信会社の1つで、AT&Tから分離されたSBC Communications社が、逆にAT&Tを買収することになった。現在の従業員数はSBC Communications社が16万3000人、AT&Tが4万7000人であり、この人員削減により、60%のコスト削減が見込まれている。 AT&Tは分割後も「地域」への参入を厳しく制限され、長距離通信はMCI、Sprint社らの新規参入業者に顧客を奪われ、苦境に立たされてきたが、この体制と、総合力や全国的な営業力を武器に、通信業界の主戦場となっている高速・大容量インターネット市場で、ケーブルテレビ業界らライバルを迎え撃つことになった。詳細情報はURL(http://www.att.com/news/2005/01/31-1)または、URL(http://sbc.merger-news.com/)または、URL(http://sbc.merger-news.com/materials/am.html)または、URL(http://sbc.merger-news.com/investor/investor.html)または、URL(http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=113088&p=irol-eventdetails&EventId=1009715)または、URL(http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?p=irol-eventDetails&c=113088&eventID=1009563)または、URL(http://sbc.merger-news.com/downloads/sbc_att_IB.pdf)または、URL(http://www.sbc.com/gen/press-room?pid=5097&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=21566)で知ることができる。今回の買収の前にAT&Tの携帯電話部門の子会社であったAT&T Wirelessは2004年8月23日に、Cingular社に買収されている。詳細情報はURL(http://www.att.com/news/2004/08/23-13215)または、URL(http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/micro_stories.pl?ACCT=088644&TICK=CINGUL1&STORY=/www/story/08-23-2004/0002237125&EDATE=Aug+23,+2004)または、URL(http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/micro_stories.pl?ACCT=088644&TICK=CINGUL1&STORY=/www/story/08-24-2004/0002237408&EDATE=Aug+24,+2004)で知ることができる。これでは貴重な資料が霧散する可能性があることから、AT&Tのサイトから歴史資料を全部ダウンロードして、PDFで保存した。FCC(Federal Communication Commission/米国連邦通信委員会)は2006年12月29日に、テレコム巨人が一連の大幅な譲歩を消費者団体と監視委員に提供した後に、AT&Tがベルサウス(BellSouth)社をUS$850億で買収することを承認したと報告した。詳細情報はURL(http://www.fcc.gov/ATT-BellSouth_Press_Release.pdf)または、URL(http://www.fcc.gov/ATT_FINALMergerCommitments12-28.pdf)で知ることができる。Chairman Martin and Commissioner TateのステートメントはURL(http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-269275A2.pdf)、コミッショナーAdelsteinのステートメントはURL(http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-269275A4.pdf)で読むことができる。1982年1月、米国のAT&TがDOJ(Department of Justice/米国司法省)の独禁法係争で和解し、AT&Tの分割が同意判決の条例で公表され、1982年2月にAT&Tの22の交換会社を7領域に分ける計画原型を完成させたが、AT&T再建計画の一環として、AT&Tの分割は否定されたことになり、同時にAT&Tの分割後、米国の圧力により実施され、現在苦境に立たされているNTT分割も否定されたことになる可能性も高くなった。ニューヨークタイムズ(New York Times)は2007年1月8日に、ベネズエラのチャベス大統領がベネズエラ経済のため、情報通信企業と電気産業企業を国営化し、管理下に収める計画を発表したと報告した。2007年1月10日に、今後6年間の大統領就任を宣言するウゴ・チャベス大統領(President Hugo Chavez)は、新しいキャビネットの宣誓のときに、支持者が喝采する群衆に向けて、米国のVerizon Communications社が運営するベネズエラで最も大きい電話会社CANTV、公的に取り引きされた最も大きい電気会社Electricidad de Caracasを国有化するということになり、外国人投資家にとっては恐ろしいメッセージを発表した。民営化させられ、そこに米国企業が参入し、情報通信を米国に牛耳られ、ベネズエラ経済が大きな問題を抱えたというのである。詳細情報はURL(http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/09/world/americas/09venezuela.html?hp&ex=1168405200&en=e83b939b4b6b8bb1&ei=5094&partner=homepage)または、URL(http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/08/AR2007010801668.html)または、URL(http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/money/20070109/venezeula09.art.htm)または、URL(http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/asection/la-fg-chavez9jan09,1,1122527.story?coll=la-news-a_section)で知ることができる。
cellular-newsは2008年5月15日に、Gartnerが報告した情報として、次の5年間で、電子情報通信市場は政府介入と市場工学がいくつかの国で必然になり、劇的に急速に変化が起こると分析したと報告した。
Gartnerは、電子情報通信が「構造的な分離」に向かってグローバルな傾向がある。
脱構築か、垂直的な電子情報通信事業者を矯正し、ビジネス・モデルが水平により構造化されたモデルと統合されると定義した。
これは、電子情報通信事業者の根本的な構造の矯正であり、Gartnerの副社長Alex Winogradoffは、「低い原価構造で、より効果的に新しい市場参加者を競争するために、過去20年間で、電子情報通信事業者はますます棚卸資産 (垂直統合)で、よりきついカップリングを通して経営効率に焦点を合わせてきた。」
「競争を奨励し、アンバンドリングや会計分離などの投資を刺激する政府移動にもかかわらず、進歩はほとんどの国で貧弱になっている。」
「監視委員は、継続的な垂直統合が進歩の不足の第一の理由であるといい、ますます政策手段として。分離を求めている。」と言っている。
Gartnerは、電子情報通信事業者が会計分離を追求していて、現在彼らの方針目標を達成するために最後の手段として機能的、そして、所有権分離を考えていると言った。
これらのタイプで分離の違いは、電子情報通信事業者から切り離されたユニット上で運動させることができる管理水準になる。
* 分離が別々の収入と費用のキープで達成するために、異なった活動を説明する手段であることをコストの詳細で正確な計算書を被って、利益が比活性のために電子情報通信事業者で作った説明になる。
* 機能的な分離は操作上完全に切り離された実体の設立を意味する。
その所有権は親会社と共に残る。
別々の実体には、別口の口座があり、それらは法的に独立している実体ではなくなっている。
* 所有権分離は、ネットワークか何らかの全体ネットワークがある電子情報通信事業者師団で別々の法人に置かれ、親会社以外の会社によって所有されていることを意味する。
構造的な分離は、このより完全に切り離された文脈でしばしば使用されてきている。
Gartnerは、機能的な分離が強く、現在垂直に統合された電子情報通信事業者によって楽しまれている原価能率で妥協できた西ヨーロッパとアジアのほとんどの先進国で監視委員によって考えられていることが判った。
その上、米国と日本における過去20年の経験は、この種類の現職電子情報通信事業者の無理矢理の離別が総合的なマイナス効果を持っていることを示した。
ヨーロッパで分離を追求したBTと他の電子情報通信事業者による機能的であった所有権分離は否定しているか、前向き効果があったかどうかわからないほど早く、ネットワーク投資が起こった。
すべての国家の監督機関とヨーロッパ連合の規制者は慎重にこの問題を見ている。
例えば、電気事業と鉄道など、他の産業の分離経験は、顧客経験とサービス品質がしばしば否定的に影響を受けることを示した。
Gartnerの副社長Alex Winogradoffは、「グローバルな野心を持っているすべての現職電子情報通信事業者が、2つの異なった戦略で、無理矢理の構造的な分離に対処すると考えるべきです。」
「まず最初に、それらの現職のフランチャイズを防御することに焦点を合わせてください。 」
「そして、2番目に、現職の構造的な離別を考えられている外国で、戦略の位置決めの機会を利用してください。」と言っている。詳細情報はURL(http://www.cellular-news.com/story/31188.php?source=newsletter)で知ることができる。
2回目のAT&T分割、NTT分割が5年後に起こり、縦社会企業から、横社会企業への構造の矯正が求められると言うことで、今の経営陣では、絶対に乗り切れない。
それが、世界中で起こる。
恐ろしい!
ただし、通信事業内容がここに来てまったく別の形になり始めていることから、必然という意味は、十分に理解でいる。
前の分割は、民営化に向けての分割であったが、今回はサービス内容による分割であり、民営化などのような甘い構造改革ではなく、成功しなければ消滅もあり得る。詳細情報はURL(http://www.jiten.com/index.php?itemid=9782)で知ることができる。

AT&T To Create Family Of Four New Companies; Company To Offer To Exchange AT&T Common Stock For AT&T Wireless Stock

NEW YORK -- AT&T today announced plans to create a family of four new companies, each operating under the ''AT&T'' brand, committed to uniform standards of quality and continuing to bundle each other's services through inter-company agreements.

Under the company's restructuring plan, which it expects to complete in 2002, each of its major units will become a publicly-held company, trading as a common stock or a tracking stock. AT&T shareowners ultimately would own stock in four businesses, each a leader in its industry.

AT&T Wireless is one of the fastest-growing wireless companies in the United States. AT&T Broadband is the largest cable TV and broadband services company. AT&T Business is the leading enterprise communications and networking company. And AT&T Consumer is the premiere consumer communications and marketing company.

Upon completion of the company's plan, AT&T Wireless and AT&T Broadband will be represented by independent, asset-based common stocks. AT&T Consumer will be represented by a tracking stock of AT&T. AT&T's principal unit will be AT&T Business. Each of the four companies will be individually accountable to customers, investors, employees and other constituencies who will be able to evaluate their performance against comparable companies.

''This is a pivotal event in the transformation of AT&T we began three years ago,'' said AT&T Chairman and CEO C. Michael Armstrong. ''It creates a family of four national service providers that will be even better equipped to bring American families and businesses a new generation of broadband communications and information services.

''We're combining the power of a common vision with the focus and flexibility of separate companies,'' said Armstrong. ''Each of these new companies will move faster in meeting customer needs, but they'll serve them under one of the world's most recognized and respected brands and they'll still be able to offer bundled services through inter-company agreements. Their employees will have better career opportunities and be even more highly motivated because they'll be working for industry-leading companies that don't have to compete internally for capital or attention. Shareowners should get the full value of their investment because investors will be better able to evaluate the financial performance of each AT&T company and compare it to its competitors.''

Armstrong stressed that the new companies will continue to collaborate. AT&T Business, for example, will continue to bundle the Wireless company's services into its offers for business customers. AT&T Business will continue to use AT&T Broadband's cable systems in serving some customers. The Wireless, Broadband and Consumer companies will purchase network services from AT&T Business under competitive, long-term commercial contracts.

AT&T's Board of Directors unanimously approved the plan in a series of meetings through the first half of the week. Next, the Board will establish a capital structure and dividend policy appropriate to each of the new companies. Among the factors the Board will consider are each company's financial performance, the dividend policies and capital structures of comparable companies, and each company's on-going capital needs. AT&T Consumer, for example, is expected to allocate a greater portion of its earnings to dividends, while the other businesses can create greater shareowner value by reinvesting more of their profits.

The Board plans to complete its review of dividend policies before the end of the year. However, the company expects that the four new companies' combined dividend will be substantially less than AT&T's current dividend. Anticipating that framework, the Board intends to adopt a corresponding dividend policy for AT&T beginning in the fourth quarter of 2000.

Restructuring Plan

In the first phase of its restructuring plan, the company intends to offer AT&T shareowners the opportunity to exchange their AT&T Common Stock for AT&T Wireless tracking stock at approximate market prices. About fifteen percent of the economic interest in AWE is already in public hands. The company said it plans to offer AT&T shareowners the opportunity to exchange at least $10 billion of its economic interest in AWE for their AT&T shares, subject to market and other conditions.

AT&T will file its exchange proposal with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the fourth quarter of 2000 and expects to implement the plan as soon as possible afterwards. Following the exchange offer and any additional sale, adjustment or other disposition, the company plans to distribute its remaining interest in AT&T Wireless to AT&T shareowners later in 2001. Both the distribution and the exchange offer are expected to be tax-free to U.S. shareowners.

The company also said that it would seek any necessary tax, regulatory and other approvals to convert the AWE tracking stock into an asset-based AT&T Wireless common stock and to distribute it to shareowners. As a separate company, AT&T Wireless will be better able to raise capital on its own, attract and retain employees and use its stock as a currency in acquiring, partnering or engaging in other transactions with other companies. AT&T expects AT&T Wireless to be an independent, publicly-held company in the summer of 2001.

Further, AT&T plans to create a new consumer communications and marketing company around its existing residential long distance and WorldNet Internet access businesses. AT&T said it would create a new class of stock to track the Consumer company's performance. It currently plans to distribute 100 percent of the tracking stock to AT&T shareowners in the third quarter of 2001.

As a separate company, AT&T Consumer plans to explore new growth opportunities. For example, it could use a portion of its cash flow to invest in technologies, such as Digital Subscriber Loops (DSL), to provide ''any distance'' broadband communications and Internet services.

AT&T also announced that, depending on market conditions, it plans to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) for stock that will track the performance of its Broadband unit during the summer of 2001. AT&T Broadband is the country's leading provider of broadband services, including multi-channel video, pay-TV, high-speed Internet access, and communications. It will assume AT&T's ownership interest in Excite@Home in connection with its public offering. Excite@Home is the country's leading provider of high-speed Internet access service.

The company plans to recapitalize the Broadband tracking stock to an asset-based common stock within 12 months of the IPO. It will then simultaneously separate the rest of the company from its Broadband unit, creating two independent, publicly-traded companies.

When all four companies have been established, AT&T's principal unit will be AT&T Business, which provides enterprise communications and networking. The company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the familiar ''T'' symbol. It will also be the legal owner of the AT&T brand, which it will license to the other companies. It will be the parent company of the AT&T Consumer business and will be the issuer of the AT&T Consumer tracking stock. AT&T will include the AT&T Network and AT&T Labs, which will serve other AT&T-branded companies as well as other companies under commercial contracts. AT&T will also continue to hold a 50 percent interest in Concert, its international communications services joint venture with BT.

All four companies will generally have exclusive licenses to use the ''AT&T'' brand within their respective markets and, under the terms of the license, they will commit to pre-determined service quality standards and conform to common customer relationship policies on such issues as privacy.

Four AT&T Companies

Armstrong said the company's plan will not only give greater visibility to the market value of each of AT&T's individual businesses but will free them to be more responsive to their specific markets and move more quickly to seize growth opportunities. Establishing AT&T Wireless as an asset-based stock company, for example, will enable it to raise more capital than it could as part of AT&T and give it greater strategic flexibility.

''We transformed a patchwork of local analog cellular systems into a nationwide digital service that redefined the wireless industry,'' Armstrong said. ''Since established as a tracking stock, AT&T Wireless has exceeded every performance target, with record operating results in the last two quarters. They had revenue of $9.6 billion over the last 12 months. Now they'll be able to move as quickly as they need to in an industry that is exploding with opportunity.''

The consumer services company, to be known as AT&T Consumer, posted over $19 billion in revenue over the last 12 months and had earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of more than $8 billion. It is the leading provider of pre-paid calling cards with distribution through more than 60,000 retail outlets. AT&T Consumer entered the local service market in Texas and New York and already has 950,000 ''any distance'' customers. Its WorldNet service is one of the leading providers of residential dial-up Internet access with over 1.3 million subscribers.

As a tracking stock, AT&T Consumer will be able to use its cash flow in growing these businesses and investing in new initiatives. The new company will have an exclusive license to use the ''AT&T'' brand for standalone residential long distance and dial-up Internet access service.

''Our consumer unit has about 60 million long distance customers,'' said Armstrong. ''As a separate company, they will be able to build on those relationships in ways that would have been difficult or redundant within the current AT&T structure. They will set their own priorities and be able to use more of the capital they generate to fund them.''

Armstrong said that the restructuring plan will allow AT&T management to give increased operational focus to its Business and Broadband units. AT&T Business' data and IP revenue grew more than 20 percent in the third quarter, but voice long distance revenue continued to decline industry-wide
at a faster rate than previously estimated. Overall, AT&T Business generated more than $28 billion in revenue over the last 12 months. AT&T Broadband produced revenue of $9.3 billion in the same period. It continues to meet aggressive targets for installing new cable services, with a revenue increase of nearly 11 percent in the third quarter, and is expected to hit its full stride in 2001.

''Over the past year and a half,'' Armstrong said, ''we transformed a collection of scattered cable TV systems into a tightly clustered, technologically advanced broadband services platform, delivering
AT&T-branded video, voice and data services to millions of American families. Similarly, three years ago, our business long distance division sold primarily voice services over a circuit-switched network. Today, nearly a third of their revenue is in data and IP services. And they've signed more than $12 billion in outsourcing and network management contracts with some of the most sophisticated companies in the world.''

The company hopes to complete all transactions in 2002, following any requisite shareowner votes in 2001 and necessary regulatory reviews and tax rulings.

Armstrong, 62, continues as AT&T's Chairman and CEO. He said that the company's Board of Directors would name CEO's for the new AT&T Consumer, AT&T Broadband and AT&T Business companies at the appropriate time. Robert M. Aquilina, 45, and Howard E. McNally, 47, are currently co-presidents of AT&T's Consumer Services unit. Daniel E. Somers, 51, is president of its Broadband unit; and Richard R. Roscitt, 48, president of its Business Services unit.

John D. Zeglis, 53, will remain Chairman and CEO of AT&T Wireless; Mohan Gyani, 48, will remain as President and Chief Operating Officer.

AT&T, which currently has about 160,000 employees, said that it does not expect significant downsizing to result from its plans although it reiterated that each company will continue to size its operations to be as competitive as possible. Any employees whose jobs are eliminated will have access to job opportunities across all of the new AT&T companies, as well as a full range of assistance including job counseling.

AT&T recognizes the importance of its relationship with debt investors. The proceeds from the repayment of inter-company obligations due to AT&T by AT&T Wireless, as well as funds from the AT&T Broadband tracking stock initial public offering, will be used to retire short-term debt. The company will reapportion its remaining debt, in a manner to be determined, between AT&T Business (including the AT&T Consumer tracking stock) and AT&T Broadband. The company currently expects that existing TCI and MediaOne debt will remain with AT&T Broadband; AT&T's term debt, with AT&T Business. Meanwhile, AT&T intends to increase its credit facility by approximately $15 billion. AT&T will work with the credit rating agencies to obtain strong ratings for the new companies.

Financial details of transactions will be released, in accordance with securities regulations, as they become available. All of these transactions are expected to be tax-free to U.S. shareowners.

Certain aspects of the transactions will require regulatory and other approvals and other aspects will be subject to market conditions or other financial considerations. While AT&T is confident of its ability to resolve any issues that arise, there can be no guarantee that the restructuring plan will be implemented or that changes in the plan will not be made.

The investment banking firms of Credit Suisse First Boston and Goldman, Sachs & Co., as well as the law firm of Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz, are serving as advisors to AT&T. Salomon Smith Barney is a co-advisor to AT&T in connection with AT&T Consumer. Merrill Lynch & Company is advising AT&T in connection with certain AT&T Wireless matters.
