Author(s) Tormod Fjellgård

Haavind was Telenor's advisor in their agreement with Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group).

Telenor Group and Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) have announced the formation of a new company that combines Canal Digital and Viasat Consumer (satellite pay-TV & broadband-TV operations).

Telenor and NENT Group will each hold 50 percent of the new company. The combination generates a Nordic player with combined net sales of approximately NOK 7 billion and around 1.25 million subscribers (Q2 2019).

We are happy and grateful to once again have the privilege of working alongside Telenor on landmark cross border, and pretty complex, deal work. [Kjetil Hardeng, Head of team]
