Telekom Slovenije completes Debitel acquisition

15 Oct 2015

Slovenian fixed and mobile operator Telekom Slovenije has announced the completion of its buyout of local MVNO Debitel telekomunikacije from existing shareholders ACH, Adria Mobil and Svema Trade. The transaction, which was valued at EUR15.8 million, was first announced in March this year. Rudolf Skobe, President of Telekom’s Management Board, commented: ‘Through the acquisition, Telekom Slovenije will enhance synergies between the companies and continue to provide customers with top quality communications services.’ Debitel, which already offers its mobile services over Telekom’s radio infrastructure, had around 92,000 users at the end of June 2015, while state-backed Telekom leads the local wireless market with 1.23 million customers. The Debitel brand will remain in place following the takeover, Telekom revealed.
