Belgium telecom provider Proximus to buy majority stake in India’s Route Mobile

BENGALURU (Reuters) – Belgian telecom service provider Proximus Group on Monday said it will buy a 57.56% stake in Route Mobile for 59.22 billion rupees ($720.53 million).

Proximus will pay 1,626.40 rupees per share of the Indian cloud communications platform provider, the former said in a statement, compared with Route Mobile’s closing price of Rs 1,625.35 on Friday.

Route Mobile’s shares were down 1.7%, reversing course after the stock jumped 8.3% to 1,759.90 rupees after the announcement, its highest since February 2022.

The acquisition will trigger a mandatory takeover offer for up to an additional 26% of the total outstanding shares at the same price per share according to Indian regulations, Proximus added.
