KPN shares jump on fresh takeover talk

Wednesday 11 November 2020 | 11:09 CET | News
Reports surfaced last month about possible takeover interest from EQT, Bloomberg reported at the time. KPN is valued at about EUR 9.4 billion on the stock exchange after this year's price falls. According to a analysis from Telecompaper, the low valuation is likely what has drawn EQT's interest, more than any synergies with KPN.
