Vivacom becomes part of international telecoms, media company United Group

Friday 31 July 2020 | 16:44 CET | News
United Group completed its acquisition of Vivacom. This follows the approval of the deal by the European Commission in April and the signing of the agreement in November 2019, when United Group won the tender to acquire telecommunications company in Bulgaria. This acquisition marks the latest milestone in United Group's growth strategy, following the acquisition of Tele 2 Croatia earlier in 2020, as well as forthcoming completion of the acquisition of Greece's pay TV, telecom and internet provider Forthnet.
