February 7 2019

The Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Modern Times Group MTG AB (MTG) shareholders, which was held today in Stockholm, resolved to distribute all of the shares in Nordic Entertainment Group AB (NENT Group) to MTG’s shareholders.

The EGM approved the Board of Directors’ proposal to distribute all of the shares in the wholly owned subsidiary NENT Group, which comprises MTG’s Nordic Entertainment and Studios business segments.
