Telefonica considering IPO of Argentine unit - report

Tuesday 27 June 2017 | 09:18 CET | News
Telefonica is considering the possibility of listing its Argentine unit to take advantage of growing investor interest in the emerging market and further reduce its debt, according to unnamed sources cited by Bloomberg. An initial public offering is one of several alternatives being weighed, and Telefonica may also explore network-sharing agreements with other operators, said one of the sources. The company is also reportedly considering an IPO of its O2 UK business before the end of the year as it seeks to reduce a debt level that stands at around EUR 48.8 billion.
