South African fixed line operator Telkom has issued a cautionary statement advising shareholders that it is still in discussions with MTN South Africa regarding the potential extension of their existing roaming agreement and outsourcing the operation of Telkom's radio access network (RAN). If successfully concluded, this may have a material effect on the price of Telkom's shares. Further information relating to the proposed transaction is likely to be disclosed with its results announcement on or about 13 June, Reuters reported.
