TDC to recommend new takeover offer from Macquarie consortium

Tuesday 13 February 2018 | 10:44 CET | News
Danish operator TDC said a consortium of pensions companies PFA, PKA, ATP, and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, has decided to launch a take-over offer for it for an all-cash consideration of DKK 50.25 per share. The offer is subject to its merger with MTG's Nordic Entertainment and Studio Business not going ahead. TDC will recommend that shareholders accept the consortium's offer, which would not be conditional on due diligence, once approved by the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.
