UAE’s Etisalat in talks to acquire stake in Kazakhtelecom
 

UAE’s telecom operator Etisalat is holding talks with sovereign wealth fund samruk-Kazyna to acquire a stake in Kazakhtelecom, in which the fund owns a 51%.

 

This comes as the fund is planning a slew of IPOs of its government-owned companies, according to Bloomberg.

 

“Just recently we had a meeting with Etisalat. Now they are holding negotiations because they have a few questions which need to be discussed. They have not reached any decision,” Akhmetzan Yessimov, chief executive officer (CEO) of Kazakhstan’s Samruk-Kazyna sovereign wealth fund told reporters.

Both sides are planning to conduct their next meeting in May.
