RTL agrees sale of Belgian business to local media groups DPG, Rossel

Monday 28 June 2021 | 08:47 CET | News
RTL Group has confirmed a deal to sell its Belgian business to the local media groups DPG Media and Groupe Rossel for EUR 250 million. The sale will see the broadcaster exit completely the Belgian market, unlike the joint ventures agreed in France and the Netherlands. Pending regulatory approval, the sale is expected to close in Q4, and the proceeds will go towards RTL dividends.
