The Swedish media group Modern Times Group MTG AB (MTG) announced on Tuesday (12 September) a mandatory offer for all outstanding shares of the Norwegian radio network P4 Radio Hele Norge ASA.

The mandatory offer follows MTG's acquisition of a further 9.41m shares from institutional and private shareholders on Monday after the close of trading. After the purchases MTG's total holding in P4 Radio Hele Norge amounts to 68.8% of the share capital.

MTG is offering NOK30 per share, which represents a 50% premium and values P4 Radio Hele Norge at NOK967.7m.

MTG said that the acquisition will result in operating synergies due to the possibility of exploiting pan-Scandinavian advertising sales initiatives.

One Norwegian krone (NOK) is worth approximately 0.08 British pounds (GBP).
