mCel, TVM merger back on the table in Mozambique

7 Oct 2013

The government of Mozambique is considering merging and privatising state-owned mobile operator mCel and pay-TV provider Televisao de Mocambique (TVM), TMT Finance reports. Although the plans have been mooted several times in recent years, no concrete action has yet been taken. TMT notes that the merger is likely to pave the way for the formation of an integrated media company which could tap into synergies and help reduce operational costs.
