Telecom Italia to discuss possible H3G tie-up – sources

MILAN, April 5 (Reuters) – The board of Telecom Italia
is expected to discuss a possible tie-up with
Hutchison Whampoa’s Italian business next week,
sources with direct knowledge of the situation said, in new
attempt to revive the company.

Chairman Franco Bernabe is under pressure from shareholders
to deliver higher returns that could lift the indebted company’s
share price from just above all-time lows.

parliamentary deadlock, a survey by U.S. bank Morgan Stanley

recession would reignite the sort of fear that pushed Italy’s
10-year bond yields above 6.5 percent in July, according to the
survey of 317 market participants carried out this week.
