伊斯坦布尔,6月18日(新华社)——土耳其财富基金(TWF)周四宣布,通过与几家公司的一系列交易协议,已同意收购土耳其领先的GSM运营商Turkcell 26.2%的股份。


“在大流行后的世界,随着消费者和企业越来越依赖数据、连接和技术,Turkcell在利用这一趋势方面具有不可思议的潜力,”该基金董事总经理Zafer Sonmez在新闻发布会上说。


在其业务组合中,Turkcell拥有超过4700万客户的国际移动和固定电信业务。


交易预计将在2020年下半年完成,以获得监管部门的批准为条件。


该公司表示,交易完成后,TWF将成为Turkcell的最大股东,并获得对董事会的有效控制权。


Sonmez指出:“我们打算支持Turkcell管理层专注于创新和5G基础设施等战略举措,同时该公司继续在产品和服务创新方面发挥先锋作用。”


Sonmez补充道:“我们坚信Turkcell将继续作为业绩驱动型企业,通过解决数十年来的股东治理问题,我们的贡献将对其财务业绩产生积极影响。”


TWF收购Turkcell股份的交易协议还包括Telia公司,这是一家总部位于瑞典的全球新一代电信公司。Telia以5.3亿美元出售其在Turkcell的间接股权,并退出该公司。


TWF成立于2016年,旨在改善土耳其的经济稳定。目前,该公司持有土耳其几家主要公司的全部或部分股份,其中包括土耳其航空公司和电信巨头土耳其电信。


早些时候,imf对新华社表示,为在土耳其和中国之间架起一座坚固的桥梁,它将给予中国企业、投资者和金融机构最大的关注。


桑莫兹在多个场合明确表示,TWF一直在实施“修订和重新定义的亚洲战略”,中国是该计划的核心。

 

ISTANBUL, June 18 (Xinhua) -- The Turkey Wealth Fund (TWF) announced on Thursday that it has agreed to acquire 26.2 percent of the shares of Turkcell, Turkey's leading GSM operator, through a series of transaction agreements with several companies.

"As consumers and businesses increase their reliance on data, connectivity, and technology in the post-pandemic world, Turkcell has an incredible potential to capitalize on this trend," Zafer Sonmez, managing director of the fund, said at a press release.

Within its portfolio, Turkcell has an international mobile and fixed telecom business with more than 47 million customers.

The transaction is expected to close during the second half of 2020, subject to obtaining regulatory clearances, the release added.

After completion of the transaction, the TWF would become the largest shareholder in Turkcell and gain effective control over the board of directors, it said.

"We intend to support Turkcell management in its focus on innovation and their strategic initiatives such as 5G infrastructure while the company continues its pioneering role in product and services innovation," Sonmez noted.

"We strongly believe that Turkcell will remain as a performance-driven entity and its financial results will be positively affected by our contribution through resolving the decades-long shareholder governance issues," Sonmez added.

The TWF's transaction agreements in acquiring the shares of Turkcell also included Telia Company, a global new generation telco based in Sweden. Telia divests its indirect stake at Turkcell for 530 million U.S. dollars and exits the company, according to the TWF.

The TWF was established in 2016 to improve economic stability in Turkey. It currently holds all or parts of shares of several major Turkish companies, including Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines and telecommunication giant Turk Telekom.

Earlier, the fund told Xinhua that it pays the utmost attention to Chinese businesses, investors, and financial institutions for building a strong bridge between Turkey and China.

Sonmez has made it clear on several occasions that the TWF has been implementing "a revised and redefined strategy" towards Asia, with China at the heart of this plan.
