10 Jan 2006

A spokeswoman for the French construction group Bouygues says its 83%-owned mobile arm Bouygues Telecom is not for sale. The announcement follows renewed speculation that Bouygues could sell France’s third largest mobile telecoms operator for up to EUR10 billion. However in an interview with Dow Jones Newswires, yesterday a spokeswoman for the parent company said, ’There’s nothing new – Bouygues Telecom is not for sale, is that clear?’
