KPN to sell some Belgian assets - paper
BRUSSELS Nov 6 (Reuters) - Dutch telecoms group KPN (KPN.AS) is considering the sale of its business-customer unit and fibre network in Belgium, Belgian daily De Tijd reported on Friday, citing several unidentified industry sources.
KPN declined to comment on the report.
KPN, which owns the smallest of Belgium's three mobile operators, BASE, is active in broadband through Tele2 Belgium, which it acquired in 2007 and recently rebranded to BASE.
A shortlist of potential buyers has been drawn up, the newspaper said, with sources citing Belgian cable company Telenet (TNET.BR) and corporate telecoms specialist Colt Telecoms (COLT.L) as candidates.
Dominant Belgian telecoms operator Belgacom (BCOM.BR) was not interested in acquiring the assets, De Tijd said. (Writing by Antonia van de Velde; Additional reporting by Gilbert Kreijger in Amsterdam; Editing by David Holmes)
