Polygon Response to the Orange Belgium Financial Expert Report

Monday, April 12, 2021 - 7:00am

Analysts generally also expect Orange Belgium to increase its market share in the medium term.

Key Points: 
  • Analysts generally also expect Orange Belgium to increase its market share in the medium term.
  • ING, for example, expects Orange Belgium to reach 11% market share by 2025.
  • But, if Orange SA succeeds in its takeover bid at the current offer price, Orange Belgium\'s shareholders who tender in the offer will lose the value of the company\'s Picasso.\nAnd it is a Picasso that Polygon believes Orange SA particularly covets.
  • Orange Belgium shareholders should seek their own advice in relation to the Orange SA tender offer.
