Ziggo’s main shareholders, private equity firms Cinven and Warren Pincus, are due to sell a 20% stake in the Dutch cable operator business.
The sale will see the pair sell 40 million shares, at an estimated price of some €1 billion, and will leave them with a combined 17.1% of the business.
The move comes a day after Ziggo said that it had received loan commitments from a number of banks to raise €800m, to partially refinance its existing debt. It said at the time it was also looking at additional refinancing options including a capital markets transaction.
Ziggo said the price per share and the final number of shares sold in the new offering will be decided after determining investor demand.
