Ziggo considers listing options

16 Jun 2008

Ziggo, the Dutch cable firm created through the merger of CATV providers Casema, Multikabel and Essent Kabelcom and owned by private equity firms Warbug Pincus and Cinven, is considering a stock market listing. Reuters quotes Ziggo chief financial officer Walter Blom in the Het Financieele Dagblad newspaper as saying: ‘We are preparing, but for the moment the financial climate is bad.’ The financial daily went on to say that Ziggo is interested in a merger with the country’s second largest cableco by subscribers, UPC, although its parent Liberty Global is apparently not interested.
