TeliaSonera's Spanish unit Yoigo up for sale – report

Thursday 12 July 2012 | 09:03 CET | News
Teliasonera is selling its Spanish mobile operator Yoigo, Reuters reports, citing four people familiar with the matter. The sale price has been set at around EUR 1 billion. The deal is expected to attract Carlos Slim, Vodafone and France Telecom as bidders. According to the same source, Teliasonera has hired Deutsche Bank to manage the disposal of its 76 percent stake in Yoigo, as it exits non-core markets in favor of its Scandinavian heartland and higher-growth central Asia.
