CCP to Hear Mobilink-Warid Merger Case this Friday

Competition Commission of Pakistan is all set to hear Mobilink-Warid merger case this Friday, we have checked with sources who are directly aware of the development.

Mobilink and Warid Telecom had applied for merger with Competition Commission of Pakistan for approval. Along side, PTA and other concerned authorities are also being taken on-board, however, CCP’s nod is going to be most crucial part for the mandatory approval process after which both companies will be allowed to join their businesses in the country.

Khalil Vadiyya, Chairman CCP, confirmed that both Mobilink and Warid have submitted all required details and necessary documents for the merger.

CCP, during its hearing, will try to ascertain if merger of Mobilink and Warid will create any anti-competitive scenarios in the market or not.

Anusha Rehman, Minister for IT and Telecom, has already said that laws don’t restrict the merger of two companies.

Sources suggest that Mobilink-Warid merger is a smooth case and there aren’t going to be any issues.

We will be updating our readers when we get more information on the case.

  • I heard Vimpelcom have some shares in Telenor as well.I think Telenor will also merge with mobilink Warid.Ufone will become useless.Only Zong will remain in competition.

    • They have a little bit shares in Telenor not the Telenor Group so dont think about it untill they fully sold out :D

      • In agreement with Telenor Employee comment. It is Telenor ASA, Oslo, Norway. This is a confidence building measure for Pakistan for M&A in technology which will open the gateway for interenational companies coming to Pakistan to launch their IPO for local listing in the capital markets. The relevant Anti Trust Authority is taking care of the country’s interests. We should refrain for negative comments, which will have a negative impact. This is a good sign.

  • Warid 4G Lte K Mostly User Warid Mobilink Merger Not Happy
    I think Warid 4G will be murge into Mobilink on 15th February

    • You need to understand this deal is not beneficial for the nation as whole. There will be huge downsizing which will cause unemployment. All Warid franchises will be closed so thousands of people will be unemployed. Most of the warid sites will be grounded so all guards of those sites will be unemployed. PTA will not be able to sell GSM license to Mobilink and there will be no competition for the upcoming 4G license auction

  • I am Warid 4G LTE User and I am Happy for this. It will help us using Mobilink and Warid infrastructure and as well as 3G Spectrum. New Mobilink will be more competitive and will result in more competition, as other networks will have to perform in order to stay in the market. Good Luck
