Egypt’s financial market regulator EFSA said on Sunday that France Telecom can go ahead with a tender offer for a stake in mobile operator Mobinil held by local shareholder Orascom Telecom Media and Technology (OTMT).

France Telecom plans to purchase most of OTMT’s stake for 1.5 billion euros ($2 billion). Some media had reported that EFSA may reject the deal, or was delaying it until the French firm responded to a request for information.

In a statement confirming its approval, EFSA gave a list of technical requirements the companies must fulfil, such as publishing full details of the tender offer within two days.
