Vodafone to study Yoigo acquisition – CEO

Thursday 27 September 2012 | 11:44 CET | News
Vodafone will study the possibility of acquiring Yoigo if it will be put up for sale, El Economista reports, citing Vodafone's CEO, Vittorio Colao. The statement follows recent press reports claiming that Teliasonera plans to start the sale process for its Spanish mobile unit Yoigo in the next two weeks. Information documents will go out soon to bidders, after being delayed over the summer by holidays and the departure of Yoigo's CEO Johan Andsjo at end-August, Reuters earlier reported, citing three people familiar with the matter.
