Mexican operator Maxcom Telecomunicaciones is up for sale. Maxcom said in a filing with the Mexican Stock Exchange that it has studied strategic options and has had talks with other market participants since the company was founded in 1996. Maxcom “remains open to having conversations,” but at the moment has not reached an agreement on any sort of deal, the company said. The operator is seeking bids from Telefonica and Vivendi, Bloomberg reports, citing two people with knowledge of the situation. According to the same sources, the tender is being run by Barclays Capital, who declined to be identified because the process is not public. Maxcom plans to seek offers in September, and potential bidders may include Telefonica and Vivendi, as well as Mexican companies Megacable Holdings, Axtel, Alestra and Grupo Televisa, said one of the sources. Megacable CEO Enrique Yamuni said in an e-mail statement that he is not currently interested in the Maxcom acquisition.
