Tele2’s divestment of T-Mobile Netherlands completed
- The management of T-Mobile Netherlands has done an excellent job since the merger of T-Mobile Netherlands and Tele2 Netherlands and I am happy to announce that this deal creates significant return to our shareholders. With this divestment we have completed our international consolidation and we will now focus on the core Nordic and Baltic region where we have the market position and scale to drive sustainable long-term growth, says Kjell Johnsen, President and CEO of Tele2.
As previously communicated, Tele2’s Board of Directors proposes that the full cash proceeds of Tele2’s 25% ownership should be distributed to the shareholders of Tele2 through an extraordinary dividend of SEK 13.00 per share (SEK 9.0 billion). The proposal stipulates that the extraordinary dividend should be paid in connection with the first tranche of the ordinary dividend on May 5, 2022.
