Last November, it was reported that Mindshare Malaysia had won the media account for Telenor-operated DiGi Malaysia. This is believed to be the earliest reported results from the pitch. 

Stephen Li, CEO of OMD Asia-Pacific, cited the agency's analytical capabilities, performance-based media channels and media creativity as reasons for the win.

"We believe that in working with Telenor, it will give us the opportunity to create interesting, challenging and effective work in the changing marketing and media ecosystem," added Li.

It is understood that the incumbent agency for Telenor's Grameenphone in Bangladesh is Starcom Mediavest Group.
