KPN has closed the acquisition of Debitel’s Dutch operations including 300,000 postpaid customers and around 230,000 prepaid customers. A part of the Debitel customer base uses the network of Vodafone Netherlands. These customers, which are estimated at around 300,000, will be transferred to Vodafone. KPN is allowed to continue to use the Debitel brand name for 2.5 years, but the operator already announced that all Debitel and Lowcall customers will be transferred to the KPN brand soon. The transaction was announced on 23 October 2008. The completion of the acquisition is approved by the Dutch competition authority, NMa. In 2007, Debitel Netherlands had net sales of approximately EUR 247 million. The company has approximately 130 FTE. The divestment is the last step of Debitel’s strategy to divest its foreign operations to concentrate on the German market.
