MTG TO HEDGE US DOLLAR AND SWISS FRANC CURRENCY EXPOSURE

Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international entertainment broadcasting group, today announced that it will hedge its US dollar and Swiss Franc denominated contracted outflow on a rolling twelve month basis. The items to be hedged relate to programming content acquired in foreign currencies. The hedging programme will reduce short-term currency translation effects on the group’s cost base.
