French market consolidation back on the table – Orange CEO

Tuesday 20 September 2016 | 10:33 CET | News
Orange CEO Stephane Richard told investors in London on 13 September that French operators had started re-engaging in consolidation talks, reports BFM Business. An Orange spokesman later played down the statement, making it clear that the company is not playing an active role in the exchanges Richard had alluded to. Following the collapse of the Orange-Bouygues deal in April, Bouygues immediately reacted to Richard's comments by denying that it had re-entered merger talks.
