The merger with Tele2 and approval of the merger plan
The Extraordinary General Meeting resolved, by required majority, to approve the merger plan adopted by the Boards of Tele2 AB (publ) (“Tele2”) and Com Hem on January 9, 2018, according to which the merger is undertaken by way of absorption, with Tele2 as the absorbing company and Com Hem as the transferring company. According to the merger plan, the exchange ratio for the merger consideration has been determined in such way that each share in Com Hem shall be exchanged for 1.0374 new Class B shares in Tele2 and SEK 37.02 in cash.
The resolution is conditional upon the Swedish Companies Registration Office’s registration of the merger of Tele2 and Com Hem. Registration of the merger with the Swedish Companies Registration Office is conditional upon the conditions in the merger plan, inter alia that all permits and approvals of the competition authorities that are necessary for the merger have been obtained.
The merger is expected to be registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office in Q4 2018 and will result in the dissolution of Com Hem, whereby all of Com Hem’s assets and liabilities will be transferred to Tele2. Settlement of the merger consideration will take place following the Swedish Companies Registration Office’s registration of the merger.
