Bharti Airtel shares up 5%, hit 52-week high on bourses

Mumbai: Stocks of Bharti Airtel rose 5 per cent on Tuesday after the company entered into an exclusive agreement with France-based telecom operator Orange to sell its four subsidiaries in Africa. The stock gained 4.98 per cent to Rs 450.85 -- its 52-week high at the BSE. On the NSE, shares of Bharti Airtel went up 4.99 per cent to touch a one-year high of Rs 450.90. "Orange and Bharti Airtel International (Netherlands) BV (Airtel) enter an exclusive agreement concerning four Airtel subsidiaries in Africa," the company said in a statement yesterday. But it said there is no certainty of any binding agreement as a result of these discussions. "The two telcos have entered into an exclusive agreement to explore the possible acquisition by Orange of Airtel's subsidiaries in Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo Brazzaville and Sierra Leone," the statement said.
