Altice Portugal dismisses possible sale as 'rumours and speculation'

Monday 31 May 2021 | 14:47 CET | News
Altice Portugal has called local press reports that Altice would be prepared to sell its Portuguese unit as "rumours and speculation", reports Jornal de Negocios. The operator recalls that such claims have been "recurrent in the last five years, not only regarding the operation of the Altice group in Portugal, but also regarding other international assets of the group". Altice Portugal added that, in the European context, "many international operators, including in the Iberian Peninsula, are involved in often speculative news of purchase and sale of assets or mergers of companies".
