Internet Gold said a few potential buyers had expressed interest in its 64.78 percent stake in BCom, a company with a single asset - a 26.34 percent controlling stake in Bezeq.

Internet Gold is “examining the possibility of advancing any of the offers over the next two weeks and the feasibility of implementing a transaction,” it said in a statement on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

Internet Gold, which is controlled by indebted Israeli holding company Eurocom, is also continuing to examine the possibility of an issuance of capital in the near term.
