Amis up for sale

23 Sep 2013

Alternative fixed broadband, VoIP telephony and IPTV operator Amis has been put up for sale, with its investment capital backers aiming for a sale price of around EUR30 million (USD40.6 million), according to Slovenian newspaper Finance.si. Based on figures in Slovenian regulator APEK’s Q2 2013 report, Amis has the following subscriber market shares in the respective segments of: IP telephony (10%); fixed broadband internet access (12%, via direct fibre and xDSL); and IPTV (11.5%). It also has a triple-play broadband network operating presence in Croatia. The Maribor-based company – owned by KBC Private Equity (Belgium) and Iris Capital of France – turned around several years of annual losses in 2012 when it posted a EUR600,000 net profit. The newspaper report suggested a realistic purchase price for Amis was around EUR25 million, while its CEO Bostjan Kosak confirmed that the firm was for sale, although he added that no formal offers had yet been tabled.
