Airtel had in July last year announced about entering into an agreement with Orange to sell its four subsidiaries Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo Brazzaville and Sierra Leone, in Africa. The agreements for the remaining two countries had lapsed.
"Orange and Bharti Airtel International (Netherlands) BV had signed an agreement leading to Orange's acquisition of Airtel's operations in Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone," the company said in a statement.
As per the agreement, Orange would acquire 100 per cent of the two companies' share capital. The consolidated revenue of the two companies is around 275 million euro.
