Com Hem’s Boxer acquisition approved

September 22, 2016

In June, Com Hem entered into an agreement through its wholly-owned subsidiary Com Hem Communications to acquire Boxer TV-Access, the pay TV operator in the DTT network in Sweden, from the government-owned company Teracom Boxer Group. The acquisition was conditional on approval by the State of Sweden and the Swedish Competition Authority. Both parties have now approved the acquisition which is expected to be completed shortly.

“We are very happy about the Competition Authority’s announcement. We are now working at full speed to close the deal as soon as possible”, commented Anders Nilsson, CEO of Com Hem.
