The merger between Tele2 NL and T-Mobile NL was announced on December 15, 2017, and has since gone through a regulatory process, including approval by the European Commission without conditions. Today, Tele2 NL and Deutsche Telekom have signed the agreement which completes the merger.
“This is a great milestone for Tele2 NL as well as Dutch consumers and businesses, as the merged company will accelerate competition and investments in the Netherlands”, says Anders Nilsson, president and CEO of Tele2.
Following the completion of the merger, Tele2 owns 25 percent of the enlarged T-Mobile NL and Deutsche Telekom owns 75 percent. Tele2 also receives a cash payment of EUR190 million, subject to standard closing adjustments.
