AT&T divests its domestic Japanese business

Claudio Castelli and Mike Sapien | June 3, 2010
AT&T has announced that it will sell its domestic outsourcing services business in Japan to Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ).

The agreement creates a network partner and wholesale customer

One of the major by-products of this agreement is the creation of a new wholesale customer for AT&T. IIJ should also be a large Japanese wholesale customer, with requirements for global network and external reach into other regions, which AT&T can provide especially back to the US. Furthermore, given the announced sale price for the business (versus the revenue), this divestiture should improve AT&Ts bottom line in the region.
