SES Astra completes SES Sirius takeover

Satellite services operator SES Astra has bought the 10% of its counterpart SES Sirius that it did not already own.

It acquired the stake, for an undisclosed sum, from the Swedish Space Corporation. SES Astra has gradually increased its stake in Sirius, having bought into the company in 2000 when it took a 50% stake. SES Sirius operates satellites that service the Nordic and Baltic territories and those in central and eastern Europe.
