Si.mobil keen to enter Slovenia’s fixed line market; Amis a likely target

1 Apr 2015

Telekom Austria’s Slovenian cellular subsidiary Si.mobil has refused to comment on speculation that it is lining up an acquisition of local fixed broadband operator Amis. A report from Finance.si says the purchase price is thought to be around EUR25 million (USD27 million). Amis, which is currently controlled by KBC Private Equity of Belgium and French firm Iris Capital, provides a full range of internet services including ADSL, wireless access, direct fibre, cable and dial-up to residential users, businesses and wholesale customers. Si.mobil is keen to enter the fixed line sector to help it better compete with the converged offerings of the country’s dominant operator Telekom Slovenije, plus smaller rival Tusmobil, which is now owned by Slovenian cable TV and broadband provider Telemach.
