SAO PAULO (Reuters) -TIM SA, Telefonica (BME:TEF) Brasil and Claro have asked that the price of their deal to buy rival telecom Oi SA’s mobile operations in Brazil be lowered by 3.2 billion reais ($605.05 million), securities filings showed on Monday.
Telecom Italia (BIT:TLIT)’s TIM, America Movil’s Claro and Telefonica’s Vivo had agreed to acquire Oi’s mobile operations in an auction in late 2020 with a joint bid of about 16 billion reais.
However, post-deal analysis showed the need for an adjusted closing price, TIM said in a securities filing, citing divergences in working capital, capital expenditure and net adds data that were seen in documents available only after closing.
In a separate filing, Oi said it strongly disagreed with the request to cut the price by about a fifth, which it dubbed as based on technical and procedural errors, and that it will take measures to contest it.
