EI Towers CEO denies Towertel sale rumours

Tuesday 24 April 2018 | 15:13 CET | News
The chief executive of Mediaset-owned EI Towers has denied press rumours that the company is looking to sell off its Towertel mast unit, with Cellnex mooted as a possible buyer. "Up to now it's all speculation," said EI Towers CEO Guido Barbieri, according to Reuters, adding that "it's not our intention to divest assets that we are in the course of developing: they are not for sale." Barbieri did concede that Cellnex would be considering new strategies following the acquisition of Abertis' 29.9 percent stake by Benetton family holding company Edizione.
