ZURICH/FRANKFURT, Sept 10 (Reuters) - German activist investor AOC has built a stake of less than 3% in Swiss telecoms group Sunrise Communications SRCG.S, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters on Tuesday.
The source said AOC was likely to oppose Sunrise's proposed 6.3 billion Swiss franc ($6.36 billion) takeover of Liberty Global's LBTYA.O Swiss UPC business, which already faces a revolt with at least two big investors joining top Sunrise shareholder Freenet FNTGn.DE in resisting the deal.
