Globalive's Lacavera eyes Mobilicity after Telus bid thwarted

TORONTO, June 4 (Reuters) - Anthony Lacavera, the entrepreneur behind the launch of Wind Mobile, is eager to engage with fellow new entrant Mobilicity about an acquisition, after the Canadian government blocked a C$380 million bid from much larger competitor Telus Corp.

“Our past offers for Mobilicity stand and we look forward to having ongoing discussions with them,” Lacavera told Reuters at a telecom conference in Toronto.

Lacavera is in the process of transferring his voting interest in Wind Mobile to Russia-focused Vimpelcom Ltd.
