Italian state lender CDP set to buy stake of up to 5 percent in Telecom Italia: sources
MILAN (Reuters) – Italian state lender CDP intends to buy shares in Telecom Italia (TIM) on the market or in block orders, a source told Reuters on Thursday.
CDP, which is controlled by Italy’s Treasury, does not currently hold any shares in TIM, the source, who is close to the matter, added.
The decision on the share acquisition, including its size, will be taken at CDP’s board meeting on Thursday.
