MANILA (Reuters) – China Telecom <0728.HK> and Philippine firms Udenna Corporation and Chelsea Logistics Holdings <CLC.PS> submitted a bid on Wednesday for a third major telecoms license on offer in the Philippines, the firms said in a statement.
Foreign firms are required to join a consortium due to a 40 percent ownership cap in local telecoms firms.
Chelsea is a shipping and logistics firm. Udenna is a holding company for firms controlled by local tycoon Dennis Uy, who has interests in real estate, property development and energy, among other areas.
