Cellnex to reach 45,000 towers following Iliad deal, targets more acquisitions

Friday 10 May 2019 | 08:48 CET | News
Spanish operator Cellnex Telecom hasn't ruled out making further acquisitions to expand its reach in the telecommunications infrastructure market after reaching deals with Iliad and Salt, its CEO told reporters at the company's AGM in Madrid. Cellnex will remain "very pro-active in looking for projects," said Tobias Martinez, according to Reuters. "The company reviews everything, but the fact we ask what time it is does not mean we are going to build a clock factory," he added.
