SAO PAULO (Reuters) – The superintendence of Brazil’s competition regulator Cade said on Friday it viewed an asset sale by Brazilian telecom Oi SA (OTC:) as “complex,” suggesting that TIM, Telefônica Brasil and América Móvil’s Claro may struggle to wrap up a quick sale.
The three companies won an auction to buy Oi’s mobile network operations for 16.5 billion reais ($3.17 billion) in December, pending regulatory approval, after Oi filed for bankruptcy protection in 2016.
The decision by Cade’s superintendence informs whatever final move the full board of the regulator may give.
