MTG sells “ECL” logistics business

October 6 2003


Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today
announced that it has sold its ‘ECL’ logistics subsidiary to Tradimus
AB. Tradimus will continue to provide distribution and fulfilment
services for MTG’s CDON and TV-Shop companies. The sale of ECL will have
no significant impact on MTG’s results.

Hans-Holger Albrecht, President and CEO of MTG, commented: “The co-
operation with Tradimus will enable us to focus on what we do best –
marketing and sales. The outsourcing of distribution and fulfilment will
reduce our fixed costs and Tradimus will focus on further improving the
service to CDON and TV-Shop customers”.
