Hong Kong-based diversified holding company Hutchison Whampoa Ltd. (Hong Kong: 0013) resubmitted its €2 billion ($2.62 billion) cash bid for Dublin-based Eircom Group Ltd., the closely held fixed, mobile and broadband telecommunications services provider.

Eircom would provide a good opportunity for Hutchison to buy what is Ireland's biggest telecom operator, and Eircom would get an operator as an owner if it worked out, a source close to the case told MarketWatch Friday. 

The initial offer made last month by Hutchison's Three Ireland subsidiary was rejected by a court-appointed examiner for having too many conditions.

Eircom is currently restructuring €3.7 billion in debt, the largest insolvency in Irish history. Hutchison is boosting its wireless acquisitions in Europe, according to Bloomberg News. It recently agreed to purchase Orange Austria for €1.3 billion, a deal being scrutinized by European regulators. The company's 3 Group has telecom assets in in six European countries and Australia.
