Altice most natural buyer for Bouygues Telecom - CEO

Friday 21 November 2014 | 09:05 CET | News
European cable group Altice, which controls France's Numericable and is set to complete its majority acquisition of French mobile and broadband operator SFR from Vivendi, sees itself as "the most interested buyer" of the country's third-biggest mobile operator, Bouygues Telecom, the Financial Times reports. Altice CEO Dexter Goei said at a Morgan Stanley press conference in Barcelona, "We view ourselves as the most natural buyer. If we get a call from Bouygues then why not? I would be surprised if there was not some effort in 2015 to get something done."
