BEIJING (AP) - A unit of the Chinese Cabinet's Citic Group has bought Macau's phone company from its British and Portuguese owners for $1.2 billion.
Citic Telecom International Holdings Ltd. said Monday it would raise its stake in Telecommunicacoes de Macau from 20 percent to 99 percent.
Citic Telecom bought a 51 percent holding from a Hong Kong unit of Cable & Wireless Plc and 28 percent from Portugal Telecom. The remaining 1 percent will be held by Macau's post office.
