America Movil makes offer to acquire rest of KPN

America Movil (AMX), which owns 29.8% of KPN (KKPNF.PK), is launching a bid to acquire the rest of the Dutch carrier for €2.40 a share, or a 20% premium to yesterday's closing price.

The offer values the 70.2% stake that America Movil doesn't own at €7.2B.

The proposal comes after America Movil last month terminated an agreement to keep its stake under 30% after KPN agreed to sell its German unit E-Plus to Telefonica (TEF) for €8.1B. The Mexican company has yet to decide whether to support the transaction.

America Movil's proposal is conditional on obtaining a stake of over 50%.

    The +20% bid of €2.40 is seen as far too low. KPN is in a process of selling it's German operations ( E-Plus ) to Telefonica.


    Let's see what Telefonica, AT&T and Liberty Global are going to do.


    At this moment dirty parties are pushing the stock back to €2.31 giving shareholders the idea that €2,40 is a fair bid.
