Hamilton assisted AllTele in the strategic acquisition of Canal Digital’s IPTV operation

Hamilton as­sist­ed AllTele in the strate­gic ac­qui­si­tion of Canal Digital’s Swedish IPTV cus­tomer base and tech­nol­o­gy plat­form. Through this ac­qui­si­tion AllTele will be the largest sup­pli­er of IPTV on the Swedish ur­ban net­work mar­ket. The deal will be im­ple­ment­ed in two steps through COM HEM’s ac­qui­si­tion of Canal Digital Kabel-TV AB and the sub­se­quent trans­fer of the IPTV op­er­a­tion to AllTele. The deal re­quires ap­proval from the Swedish Competition Authority. Hamilton’s team was led by Thomas Nygren, as­sist­ed by Martin Prager and Pontus Stenbeck.

Including this ac­qui­si­tion, Hamilton has as­sist­ed AllTele in four ac­qui­si­tions dur­ing 2011, the ear­li­er ac­qui­si­tions are the pur­chase of the broad­band and IP tele­pho­ny op­er­a­tion in Blixtvik AB in a deal with IP-Only AB, the pur­chase of the broad­band and IP tele­pho­ny op­er­a­tion in ePhone from Perfect Communication Sweden AB and an ac­qui­si­tion of broad­band and IP tele­pho­ny cus­tomers from Bredbandsbolaget.
