Turkey's Sisecam eyes acquisition opportunities in Europe, China, Africa

Date: 6 February 2015

Turkey's Sisecam is eyeing household glassware acquisition opportunities in Europe and China, and flat glass opportunities in Africa, the company's general manager Ahmet Kirman said.  

"On flat glass we are eyeing African opportunities. We already have investments in Egypt which also target the African market, but it could be interesting to go for the sub-Saharan market," Kirman told Reuters in an interview.



Kirman said Sisecam would have to wait until 2016 for better market conditions to hold a planned initial public offering for its Pasabahce unit.
