Liberty to become sole Ziggo shareholder from 19 May 2015

22 Apr 2015

A squeeze-out price of EUR39.78 (USD42.65) has been established for each of the remaining shares in Dutch cableco Ziggo following its merger with rival UPC Netherlands. Minority shareholders are expected to voluntarily transfer shares to parent company, UK-based Liberty Global, by 13 May 2015, with the parent set to subsequently pay the squeeze-out price to the Dutch Ministry of Finance on 19 May 2015, thus becoming Ziggo’s sole shareholder as of that date.
