Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris has confirmed rumours that he plans to sell his minority stake in Egypt’s second-largest mobile operator. Sawiris currently owns a five percent stake in the Egyptian Company for Mobile Services (Mobinil), which he founded in 1998, with France Telecom owning 94 percent of the mobile operator as of May 2012. Asked about whether he was going to sell his remaining stake in Mobinil, Sawiris told CBC on Sunday evening: “But of course; they ruined the company,” referring to majority stakeholder France Telecom’s management. “Very big companies tend to be like public sector companies,” said Sawiris, in criticism of Mobinil’s management. France Telecom partnered with Sawiris’ Orascom Telecom in August 2001. In 2007, disagreements over management led the two firms to resort to international arbitration, which resulted in Sawiris having to sell most of his stake to France Telecom in 2010. Mobinil is Egypt’s second-largest mobile services provider, with 32.7 million subscribers, second only to Vodafone Egypt’s 38.2 million, according to the latest figures provided by the country’s telecoms regulator. The company reported a net loss of EGP 344 million in the first half of 2014, compared to a loss of EGP 296 million in the same period of the previous year. It is currently trading for EGP 155.34 a share on the Egyptian Stock Exchange.

It is expected to help marketers target Facebook users more effectively by measuring which users have seen, interacted or acted upon ads that appear on Facebook's services and on third-party websites and apps.The product will also provide a tool for marketers to buy ads to target Facebook users across the Web. Microsoft took on Atlas with its $6.3 billion acquisition of digital ad agency aQuantive in 2007. Unable to make it work for its own purposes, Microsoft wrote off $6.2 billion of the aQuantive deal's value in 2012. The world's No.1 Internet social network, which lags behind market leader Google Inc in U.S. market for online display ads, did not reveal how much it paid for the technology. Facebook counts 1.5 million advertising customers and the company's ad business saw strong growth across all of its geographic regions, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg told Reuters in July. Mobile advertising revenue grew 151 percent year-over-year, accounting for roughly 62 percent of Facebook's overall ad revenue in the second quarter.
