Telstra separation announced next Thursday?

The eerie quiet that has descended over the once very public stoush between the Federal Government and Telstra (ASX:TLS) could be the clearest indication yet that a deal on the separation of the telco is close at hand.

Speaking to Computerworld, telecommunications industry analyst Paul Budde said an announcement on a deal for Telstra’s separation could come as early as Thursday next week when the company is due to hold its half yearly results shareholder meeting.

“The fact that it has been so quiet the past two months is a good sign that the issue is on the way to getting resolved,” he said. “Given the shareholders meeting next week, there may have been some grace given to Telstra to let them announce the changes at their shareholder meeting.”
