Merger talks between Tata Teleservices and MTS in advanced stage

Merger talks between Tata Teleservices and Russia's Sistema have advanced substantially, with negotiations centered on a deal that transfers NTT DoCoMo's stake as well as part of the Tata Group's holding to Sistema, giving it a substantial shareholding. The two companies have appointed bankers Rothschild for Sistema, which operates under the MTS brand, and Standard Chartered Bank for the Tata Group. Japan's NTT DoCoMo had bought 26% stake in Tata Teleservices in November 2008 for around 13,000 crore, valuing the company at over Rs 50,000 crore (over $8 billion).
