Vivendi presses Orange to bid for Maroc Telecom
Vivendi is pushing for France Telecom-Orange to enter the battle for its 53% stake in Maroc Telecom, according to the Wall Street Journal.
France Telecom-Orange has reportedly been considering a bid for the Moroccan operator for some time, but is yet to act.
Etisialat in the UAE, which already has a presence in Africa, now stands as the only bidder.
Vivendi put its stake up for sale in October last year and it initially attracted four bidders.
