Reuters exclusively reported that Italy’s Prime Minister Mario Draghi has approved a decree allowing Italy’s state broadcaster RAI to cut its holding in towers unit Rai Way below 51%, in a move expected to trigger sector consolidation. The decree could pave the way for merger talks between Rai Way and EI Towers, the officials said, a long-mooted tie-up that would create a group worth more than 2 billion euros ($2.2 billion) in the television and radio mast sector.
