Orange SA said it has no plans to merge with Telecom Italia SpA, reacting to reports that the French phone carrier is seeking expansion beyond its home market.

“Contrary to some press rumors or other speculation, Orange affirms there are no discussions with Telecom Italia and no plan to merge,” Jean-Bernard Orsoni, a spokesman for the Paris-based company, said by e-mail on Wednesday.
