Tiscali chops off Swiss arm

Subsidiary offload continues

ISP Tiscali is selling its Swiss subsidiary to Smart Telecom SA, a Swiss internet service provider. The deal should close within seven days and Smart Telecom is paying €5.3m for the company.

The sale is part of Tiscali's stated intention to get out of "non-core" markets. The ISP has already disposed of businesses in Austria, South Africa, Norway and Sweden.

Tiscali shares have fallen more than 50 per cent in the last six months.
