Telecompaper reports that several foreign subsidiaries of Telekom Slovenije could be sold after its privatisation, and this is all according to sources who talked with Megamarket, and were reported by Seebiz.
The most likely candidate is One, the Macedonian subsidiary of Telekom Slovenije, because it operates in a very demanding market. What is more, if Deutsche Telekom took over Telekom Slovenije, it would probably have to sell One because of competition, as it is the owner of the largest Macedonian telecommunications company Makedonski Telekom.
Telekom Slovenije has previously considered selling its business in Bosnia, Blicnet, as it wants to focus on the triple-play market. Kosovo’s Ipko could also potentially be sold, as well as a 50 percent stake in Gibtelecom. Ultimately it will all depend on the strategy of the new owners, mainly taking into account that these less developed markets should generate economic growth in the coming years. The deadline for submitting bids for 72.75 percent of Telekom Slovenije is 10 August.
