(MENAFN) The Kuwait-based telecommunication company, Zain, reported that it turned down the three offers it received for acquiring a stake in its Saudi Arabia unit, reported The National.
Zain reported turning down all three offers it received from Al Waleed bin Talal’s Kingdom Holding, Bahrain Telecommunications (Batelco) and a consortium led by Al Riyadh Group. All three offers aimed at buying a 25 percent stake in Zain-Saudi Arabia.
After this announcement, three senior executives from Zain Group resigned and the company reported expectations for four more officials to leave the company.
It is worth noting that Zain jeopardized Etisalat’s proposed acquisition of a 46 percent controlling stake in Zain, as Etisalat made the seling of Zain Saudi Arabia a precondition for the acquisition deal.
