Com Hem and Tele2 EGMs formally approve merger

Friday 21 September 2018 | 14:54 CET | News
Com Hem and Tele 2 each said that their respective Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) have approved motions to merge the two companies. Com Hem shareholders rejected a proposal from Martin Green for a probe into whether  members of Com Hem's board and management fulfil legislative and regulatory requirements and the demands that society's ethical values place on people in leadership roles. The merger is expected to be logged with the Swedish Companies Registration Office in the fourth quarter.
