EU regulators set to approve Hutchison’s Italian deal – sources

BRUSSELS, July 8 EU antitrust regulators are
expected to approve CK Hutchison Holdings’ plan to
merge its Italian mobile business with that of Vimpelcom
after they agree to help Iliad break into the market,
two people familiar with the matter said on Friday.

Clearance from the European Commission would offset the
setback Hutchison had when the EU competition enforcer blocked
its bid to expand its footprint in the UK by buying O2 two
months ago.

Iliad on Tuesday said it had agreed to create a fourth
Italian mobile network operator by buying frequencies and
infrastructure assets from Hutchison and Vimpelcom.


Both the Commission and Iliad declined to comment.
