KKR comes forth as possible buyer of Telenor ops in Serbia - report

Wednesday 31 January 2018 | 09:18 CET | News
Serbian daily Politika has reported that US investment fund KKR may be the possible buyer of Telenor's operations in Serbia and the region. KKR already owns United Group, a regional DTH and cable TV operator, whose Serbian assets include cable operator SBB, DTH platform Total TV and thematic TV channels N1, Ultra, Grand, Sport Klub, Cinemanija and Ultra. With the acquisition of Telenor, United Group would be able to provide quadruple-play services in Serbia, as it already offers fixed telephony, cable TV and internet.
