Telekom Srbija has entered the second round of tenders to acquire the Kosovan telco Ipko Communications.
Quoting Telekom Srbija’s coordinator for internet and multimedia Vladimir Lucic, speaking to the print edition of Blic, Capital adds that the Serbian company is extremely interested in the transaction.
Lucic also said that its offer was economic and not political, stressing that Telekom Srbija already has a fixed and mobile operator in the area of Kosovo and Metohije.
Ipko is currently 100% owned by the Slovenian incumbent Telekom Slovenije and last year the Kosovan regulator RTEPK ruled that it cannot be sold without its prior permission.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, Telekom Srbija is believed to have offered €155 million for Ipko.
