Telia denies plan to buy TDC, might even leave Denmark

Monday 30 January 2017 | 12:13 CET | News
Telia Company is not currently contemplating any attempt to acquire Danish operator TDC, according to a report by news agency TT on Swedish newspaper SydSvenskan's website. At a press conference following Telia's fourth quarter results, its CEO Johan Dennelind said the company is looking at several potential opportunities in the Nordic and Baltic region, some of which look feasible, but that buying TDC is not one of them. TDC is too expensive and risky at present, he said.
