Italy's Retelit denies formal merger talks with F2i

Wednesday 11 October 2017 | 14:34 CET | News
Italian telecommunications infrastructure provider Retelit has denied reports that it's in formal talks with infrastructure fund F2i about a possible merger. Retelit was responding to a report in Il Sole 24 Ore indicating that it was examining a capital hike funded by F2i that would see the latter's 2iFiber telecommunications unit acquiring a majority of its shares. "No formal negotiations between f2i and [Retelit] are in place, only informal talks, which are related to the normal activities among telecom operators," said the company in a brief statement.
