Dialog Telekom to be renamed Dialog Axiata

19 Apr 2010

Sri Lanka’s dominant wireless operator Dialog Telekom intends to change its name to Dialog Axiata, in line with its Malaysian parent group, the firm said in a stock exchange filing, reported by Lanka Business Online. The cellco’s owner, Axiata Group, was previously named TM International (a company spun off from Telekom Malaysia) but assumed its current moniker in May 2009. Dialog stated the name change ‘will accurately reflect its corporate identity,’ although the move is subject to approvals from shareholders and the company registrar.
