BERLIN (Reuters) – Acquiring a majority stake in T-Mobile U.S. is a priority for Deutsche Telekom (OTC:)’s chief executive Timotheus Hoettgas, he said on Thursday after the telecoms operator published its second-quarter results.
“This is our most important strategic project at present,” Hoettgas said.
Deutsche Telekom currently holds a 48.4% stake in the company. This should increase to more than 50% in the medium term, he said.
