MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Carlos Slim's America Movil, Latin America's biggest telecoms company, said on Monday that new regulation in its core Mexico market was beginning to weigh on its performance.
Lower exchange rate and financing costs helped the company increase its profit by 32.7 percent to 18.83 billion pesos ($1.45 billion) in the second quarter. Revenue also rose 4 percent to 202.63 billion pesos.
But the results were below expectations forecast in a Reuters poll of five analysts of a net profit of 20.74 billion pesos ($1.6 billion).
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Billionaire Carlos Slim's America Movil AMXL.MX said on Tuesday it is ready to divest assets in an unprecedented step to cut its market share in Mexican telecoms below 50 percent and escape the burden of tougher regulations.
The company, which controls some 70 percent of Mexico's mobile market and 80 percent of the fixed line business, said in a statement its board had decided to sell assets to another company that could boost investment in the sector.
Latin American telecoms giant America Movil has launched a €1.4 billion ($1.9 billion) offer for the 73% stake in Telekom Austria it does not already own.
The offer values Telekom Austria at €7.15 a share and is set to remain open for a period of eight weeks, said America Movil (Mexico City, Mexico) in a statement.
For the deal to go ahead, the offer must be accepted by shareholders currently in control of at least 50% of the outstanding shares.
Brazilian operator Telefonica Vivo has teamed up with network equipment supplier Ericsson on a smart city in Sao Paolo.

The company says design, installation and rollout are all included in the scope of the agreement – along with responsibility for managed services, including operations and maintenance, once the technology is up and running.
Some of the same elements that have given rise to the M2M industry boom have also enabled a variety of new security threats. In this webinar we will discuss the latest security solutions in M2M. Case studies and trends for the future in M2M Security will be presented as well.
Brazil’s telecoms operators have reportedly announced plans to invest an additional BRL13 billion ($6 billion) in developing M2M technology over the next four years following moves by Brazilian authorities to cut the taxes they must pay on M2M SIMs.
Recent moves to reduce the charges operators have to pay on active M2M SIMs appear to have spurred operators to pour additional funding into their M2M activities, according to a report from Business News Americas.
