3 Italia And Wind Reportedly Resume Merger Talks

Hutchison Whampoa Limited (SEHK:13) has resumed talks with VimpelCom Ltd. (NasdaqGS:VIP) over merging their Italian mobile firms, 3 Italia S.p.A. and Wind Telecomunicazioni SpA, according to several people familiar with the situation. "The talks are live again," said one of the sources, who asked not to be named. Vimpelcom has hired Morgan Stanley to advise on the deal, while Goldman Sachs is working with Hutchison, said the sources. Mediobanca is also expected to have a role, said the sources. According to Reuters, spokespeople for Vimpelcom, Wind, Hutchison, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Mediobanca declined to comment. The parties have held on-off talks for over six months and came very close to agreeing a deal in December, the sources said. The clearance of Hutchison's O2 Ireland acquisition, together with a partial refinancing of Wind's debt, is now creating a new momentum for the deal to happen, said the sources.
