President Of ETB Supports Its Privatization

Jorge Castellanos, President of Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá S.A. E.S.P. (BVC:ETB), believes that the company should be privatized in order to become profitable again. Castellanos deems the sale as necessary because the company will continue to lose its market share in Bogota. Moreover, provided that the Coucil of Bogota approves the sale in the upcoming months of 2016, ETB will take a year to prepare for the bidding process. Castellanos further revealed that the sale will be worth COP 2.5 trillion, with an additional charge for taking an ownership of the company. Consequently, various trade unions and associations will have two to three months to participate in a private auction with fixed price shares, after which the sale of ETB will be open to all other potential buyers.

Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá S.A. E.S.P. (BVC:ETB) has rejected press reports that the possible sale of the company is being considered. ETB issued a statement to the market saying that its shareholders, Board of Directors or Chairman have not issued any such instructions.
