New group of foreign investors could bid for phone company Bezeq

A group of foreign investors will submit a bid next week in the tender for control in phone company Bezeq (TASE: BEZQ ).

A group representative told TheMarker that the group includes only foreign investors, and that it is headed by a major player. The representative said that the lead investor can bid alone, should the investor choose.

The representative said that the decision to bid was prompted among other things by amendments made last week in Bezeq's privatization plan, but added that the group wants to further examine issues such as taxation and the dividends policy.

TheMarker has learned that the group does not include European fund Apax, which to date was considered the main potential foreign bidder.

Other groups that could bid for control in Bezeq are Arison-Eurocom, Africa Israel-Dankner, the Israel Corporation, Polar Investments, and the Kaul-Rosenne group. The closing date for proposals is February 13.
