Why KPN and Proximus will not merge anytime soon

Tuesday 10 September 2019 | 09:23 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Dominique Leroy's decision to move from CEO of Proximus to heading KPN has raised speculation the two operators could be closer to a merger. We expect that is unlikely to happen any time soon, even if there is the possibility of synergies between the Dutch and Belgian companies, as there are too many complicating factors in the way.
