Private fund offers to buy Mexico's Maxcom in $54 mln deal
MEXICO CITY Dec 4 (Reuters) - A Mexican private fund has offered to buy Maxcom Telecomunicaciones for around 700 million pesos ($54 million), or 2.9 pesos per share, the telecom firm said in a statement to the stock exchange on Tuesday.
The offer by Ventura CapitialPrivado SA de CV also includes increasing Maxcom's capital by at least $22 million. The transaction is pending authorization by Mexico's banking and securities commission.
Maxcom, which had struggled for years to boost profits in a market led by America Movil, ended September with 272,442 clients, mostly in the residential market.
The company, which launched operations in 1999, offers voice, Internet and cable services.
Maxcom shares ended down 0.28 percent at 3.62 pesos on Tuesday, before the Ventura announcement was made.
