BT mulling sale of entire LatAm business - report

Tuesday 23 July 2019 | 14:53 CET | News
A sale of BT's Latin American business could raise "hundreds of millions of pounds", according to the report, and would mean abandoning some 28 countries, almost half of the 60 countries in which BT currently operates, added the report. The company has around 1,000 staff in Latin America and is also facing a potential GBP 204 million tax bill in Brazil.
