Additionally, Telenor reached an agreement with Schibsted to divest from a joint venture with Schibsted in Latin America and bought back its stakes in markets of Malaysia, Vietnam and Myanmar, reported.

Telenor also signed an agreement with Singapore Press Holdings to buy shares in advertising online sites in Malaysia, Vietnam, and Myanmar with a deal worth $110 million.

ChoTot was launched in 2012 and is a leading advertising online market in Vietnam.

The change of shareholders will not affect the business strategy of ChoTot as Telenor joined the board of management of 701Search in 2013 and is an important part of the company, CEO of ChoTot said in a press release.
