Ooredoo reveals plans to carve out its tower portfolio


In line with its evolved strategy to shift towards an asset-light model, Ooredoo Q.P.S.C. is preparing for a potential carve out of its tower portfolio to extract optimal value from its infrastructure and create more value for customers and shareholders.

The company’s tower portfolio comprises about 20 thousand towers spread across the countries where it operates. This transaction will allow the company to work on a deal that is suitable for target markets, attract third tenant business and create efficiencies.

As part of the process, Ooredoo will explore strategic options that will unlock significant capital and maximise value for shareholders.

Ooredoo is an international communications company operating across the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia.
