(New York, NY January 29, 2013) -- The World Teleport Association released a new report, Best Practices in Teleport Valuation. The latest in the Four-Nines series of reports shares the insights of experts with experience in finance and law as well as experienced teleport and satellite executives. It explores how valuation is done, how owners can maximize value and buyers can avoid overpaying, and how to achieve success in financing a facility.

Best Practices in Teleport Valuation is based on confidential interviews conducted with financial analysts, legal experts and teleport and satellite executives who have done transactions in which the valuation of the property played a crucial role. The interviews explore:

  • The most important factors with an impact on valuation
  • The sometimes subtle issues that can push valuation up or down
  • The right process for obtaining an objective valuation
  • Strategic factors that make a teleport attractive (or unattractive) to a buyer
  • Mistakes to avoid in buying, selling, or financing a teleport
  • Pre-emptive steps that teleport operators can take to improve the value of their facilities as financial assets.

Best Practices in Teleport Valuation is available free to WTA members from the World Teleport Association website. Non-members may purchase a copy of the report from the site. WTA will provide a free copy of the report to accredited members of the press.
