Unitel Angola, is allegedly waiting for the launch of an international tender to submit an offer to buy Guinea-Bissau’s Guiné Telecom.
According to macauhub.com.mo, Eunice Lopes Esteves, chair of the Management and Company Restructuring Commission for Guiné Telecom and Guinetel, stated that the Angolan company had expressed interest in acquiring the first of the two companies.
According to the report, the first conference on Telecommunications in Guinea-Bissau was attended by parties who showed potential interest in acquiring the two bankrupt companies. This included companies from Ghana, China, South Africa, Romania and Law firms representing other interested parties.
“In 2011 there was specific interest from Unitel and we made some contacts, but now the Angolan company is awaiting clarification of the sector. This is because the sale of the companies will be made via international tender – which is open to all interested parties,” Esteves concluded.
