TDC target for take-over - report

Rumour mill keeps on turning

The rumour mill is working overtime following press reports that Danish telco TDC could be snapped up by an international group of investors.

TDC - the outfit that helps run discount mobilephoneco easyMobile in the UK - is reportedly on the shopping list of some unnamed investment funds, according to Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

Further speculation concerning the future of TDC comes less than a fortnight after TDC was named as a possible suitor for UK telco Colt. At the time TDC declined to comment on what it described as rumour and speculation.

In September TDC - previously Tele Danmark - announced it was buying Swedish IP and business telecoms outfit Song for $552m. Song provides business with IP and data services and operates in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. ®
