The privatisation committee of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s autonomous Republika Srpska (RS) has extended the deadline for bids for the region’s incumbent operator Telekom Srpske for a second time, from 3 November to 20 November; the original date was 4 October.

Further interest has come from Elisa Communications of Finland, Iceland’s Matav Madarska Novator, Telenor of Norway, Valiva of Switzerland and Planetsky of Cyprus, all of which have signed a confidentiality statement showing interest in the purchase of the documents.
