Telekom Srbija highest bidder for Kosovo IPKO telecommunication operator

June 26, 2020

Serbia’s state Telekom company said it offered 155 million Euro, the highest price among ten other, for Kosovo’s IPKO telecommunication operator, media have reported.

Telekom said that due to confidentiality of information before the public call was over, it could not reveal any details. Kosovo’s RTK TV reported that local experts estimated it would jeopardise the national security if Telkom Srbija became the owner of IPKO.

Pristina’s Regulatory Body for Electronic and Postal Communications (RTEPK) decided in July that IPKO could not change the owner and sell shares to other company without RTEPK prior consent.

The decision came after Telekom Slovenia, the 100 percent owner of IPKO, announced last July the procedure of selling it.
