Orange mulls listing cyber security business

Friday 23 October 2020 | 10:53 CET | News
Orange is considering plans to spin off its cyber security operations as part of its strategic options, reports Les Echos quoting group CEO Stephane Richard. The news follows an earlier report by La Lettre A, which recently revealed that investment banker Jean-Marie Messier was involved in the project. Trade unions have expressed strong opposition to the plan, arguing that it would prevent effective collaboration with closely linked group divisions, particularly Orange Business Services.
