(Reuters) – The broadband operator said Thursday that Altice USA Inc will retain its regional internet and cable business, Suddenlink, after a strategic review.

A source told Reuters in July that the company, which is controlled by French-Israeli telecom tycoon Patrick Drahi, has hired Goldman Sachs to manage the divestment, and the company is likely to generate $20 billion including debt.

Altice shares were down about 4% in pre-bell trade.

Altice acquired Suddenlink, which primarily serves customers in the south central US, for $9.1 billion in 2015 and renamed it to “Optimum” in August.

The company was exploring selling Suddenlink to reduce its debt burden amid strong competition and subscriber losses. Altice, which has a market capitalization of about $2 billion, has a long-term debt of about $24 billion.

The stock has lost nearly half its value since reports emerged of the company exploring a sale of the unit.
