The FINANCIAL — Telia Company acquires 100 percent of Inmics Oy, a Finnish ICT company with a strong regional presence, at an enterprise value of EUR 75 million on a cash and debt free basis.
The transaction will further strengthen Telia Company’s product portfolio with a competitive offer of IT equipment and services targeting the Finnish SME segment, according to Telia Company.
