It’s reported that investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (KKR) is talking to Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom about a possible takeover of the Everything Everywhere business in the UK. Tom Alexander, who left his role as Everything Everywhere’s CEO a year ago, is said to be leading the bid.
Former Vodafone CEO Arun Sarin is one of KKR’s senior advisors; a role he was appointed to in October 2009.
Everything Everywhere has run the Orange and T-Mobile networks in the UK since its formation in 2010.
