The company in December said it has been able to sell 150 residential flats in Navi Mumbai for Rs 330 crore. The rating firm believes that RCom is currently not pursuing the sale of GCX (Global Cloud Xchange) and DTH businesses as its deleveraging strategy now hinges on tower disposal and the merger of the wireless businesses.
The company signed an exclusive agreement with Tillman and TPG for the sale of its tower assets.
However, there is a negative news: The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is considering barring all trading and sharing of airwaves and of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the telecom sector till the auctions end so that spectrum caps can clearly be defined while setting out the rules for the sale. The Aircel-Reliance Communications merger deal or any M&A by Telenor, which is in talks with Vodafone, might not get requisite clearances till the spectrum auctions are over.
