VimpelCom Mulls Yevroset

VimpelCom said it would decide next month on whether to buy control of Yevroset Holding.

VimpelCom already owns a 49.9 percent stake in Yevroset and has yet to decide on whether to buy another 25 percent, VimpelCom spokeswoman Yelena Prokhorova said Friday. VimpelCom's exclusive right to buy the 25 percent stake in Yevroset expires Jan. 23, she said.

Alexander Mamut, who owns the rest of Yevroset, is seeking to sell his 50.1 percent stake, Kommersant reported late last week.
