I have chosen topic 8 and I am studying telecommunications. I have selected a local telecommunication communication company because it is listed on the stock exchange. I have selected a company in another country in the Southern Africa as a comparator. How can I make a meaningful analysis because the comparator is a group of companies based in South Africa but with subsidiaries in other countries ie North Africa and even West Africa.
Are you resubmitting and if so did you previously use this company? If the answer is no to either of these then you cannot submit on this telecoms company for Period 35. The industry sectors are changing and therefore if choosing Topic 8 you are obliged to comply with the new rules.
Thanks for a quick response. Yes I am intending to submitting for the first time. I read somewhere that the comparators are changing in period 36. I don’t know how true it is.
Now when are the new industry sectors released?
I think they are due to be announced in the new Information pack which is due any day now. So I think you will find it comes into effect for Period 35 this November.
Of course if you do another topic (other than 15) then you can choose any suitable company.
I would like to start on my research on topic 8, and was wondering when they would announce the new industries?
