Last week in telecoms: M&A developments at TIM, Forthnet, others boost TP stock index

Monday 9 April 2018 | 08:01 CET | News
The European telecoms sector had a positive week. The Telecompaper telecoms index rose by 1.1 percent during week 14, just shy of the EuroStoxx 50's gain of 1.4 percent. Satellite company Intelsat (+36%) and Greek challenger Forthnet (+18%), a takeover candidate, were the biggest winners. TIM (+11%) benefitted from an ongoing battle for its management, with CDP buying a 5 percent stake and Elliott raising its stake to 10 percent.
