Orange says no appetite to expand in Europe, could strengthen Belgian and Romanian operations

Friday 26 January 2018 | 10:43 CET | News
Orange Deputy CEO Gervais Pellissier told Les Echos that the group is not looking to expand in Europe beyond the eight markets where it has already a presence. The statement follows press speculation that Orange could be interested in Altice's PT Portugal business. Opportunities within the group's existing footprint are always a possibility, said Pellissier, adding that in Belgium and Romania, where the company has no fixed network of its own, it remains alert towards "strategic options".
