Deutsche Telekom raises stake in Greece's OTE to 45 percent

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany’s Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) said on Wednesday it had paid 284 million euros ($330 million) for a 5 percent stake in Greek telecoms operator OTE (OTEr.AT), raising its holding to 45 percent.

The transaction, announced earlier by the Greek privatisation agency, had been expected after a tender attracted no bids and Deutsche Telekom was invited to exercise its right of first refusal to buy the stake.
