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.
