MILAN Nov 26 Telecom Italia
shareholder Marco Fossati said on Monday that any offer for the
company from Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris must be worth
around 1.5 euros per share to be attractive.
The debt-laden group has attracted attention from Sawiris,
who could invest billions of euros by buying new shares in the
company. The possible investment will be discussed at a Telecom
Italia board meeting on Dec. 6.
"I seem to have understood there is no specific or detailed
offer," Fossati told Reuters. "We're waiting for his next move."
"A correct price would be the one that most shareholders
have on their books, which is around 1.5 euros per share."
Fossati holds a five percent stake it the company. At 1024
GMT, shares were trading at 0.69 euros, down 0.6 percent.
