Local newspaper Delo reports that the Slovenian government is considering selling its 74% stake in incumbent telco Telekom Slovenije, with an unnamed source suggesting that Deutsche Telekom is viewed as a likely buyer. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the government launched an international tender for 49.1% of directly and indirectly held Telekom shares in August 2007, but despite shortlisting seven strategic bidders the government cancelled the sale at the beginning of March 2008 after none could satisfy its expectations. Further attempts to sell smaller stakes of 10% and 1.49% in December 2008 and June 2009 respectively were also unsuccessful.
