Jul 18 14
Megatech Engineering, Inc. has emerged as the top bidder for 70% stake in Telkom Kenya Limited.Megatech had a competition from international firms including a Vietnam and a British consortium. Megatech placed a bid of KES 25 billion, while an unnamed British Group placed a bid of KES 16.3 billion and Viettel Telecom Co proposed KES 10.6 billion. Orange (ENXTPA:ORA) had in March 2014, appointed Lazard to help it find buyers. Several companies were said to have also placed offers for Telkom Kenya including Unitel GmbH & Co.KG. However, TMT Finance last week reported that Orange was yet to find a prospective buyer with an offer matching its expectation. "It is thought that Lazard is still seeking offers for the (Kenyan) unit, and is not yet holding advanced negotiations with any one party, with current bids much lower than the seller's expectations," a brief by TMT last week said. TMT reported Viettel as being considered one of the favorites for the Telkom Kenya deal. TMT said the Kenyan unit will be difficult to sell as the license conditions require the buyer to be a well-established operator. Any company that gets the deal will have to work with the government of Kenya, owner of the remaining 30% stake.
