Listed IT company 4iG on Wednesday said its unit 4iG Montenegro signed a final sale and purchase agreement with PPF Telecom to acquire 100% of Telenor Montenegro, the country's leading mobile telecommunications service provider, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

4iG did not disclose the value of the transaction but said it could close by the end of the year, pending clearance by competition authorities.

The company signed a term sheet to acquire Telenor Montenegro in July.

4iG chairman-CEO Gellért Jászai said the acquisition is "an important step in the implementation of our strategy in the Western Balkans".

"The acquisition may open up additional opportunities for us in the region in the telecommunications and ICT markets," he added.
