Tele2 expects EC to approve takeover of Dutch unit by Deutsche Telekom

Tuesday 27 November 2018 | 09:30 CET | News
Tele2 said it is optimistic the takeover of its Dutch unit will be approved by the European Commission, without conditions. The group noted that the EC has until 30 November to take its decision. The acquisition by Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile Netherlands of Tele2 NL was first announced at the end of last year. The move will reduce the number of operators on the Dutch market to three from four. The company made the statement in response to market reports that the Commission is set to approve the deal.
