Orange rules out total or partial Euskaltel acquisition

Thursday 7 February 2019 | 10:25 CET | News
Orange has informed Europa Press that it has ruled out any move to take over regional Spanish operator Euskaltel, "be it total or partial". The confirmation comes after the group responded to a clarification request from market regulator CNMV last month with a statement saying it was not "at this moment" analysing a transaction "consisting of the acquisition of 100 percent of the shares of Euskaltel", before going on to note that it was always considering possibilities to grow its presence in Spain.
