Liberty Global Extends Shareholder Deadline

As expected, Liberty Global has extended the deadline for Ziggo shareholders to accept the company’s offer for the Dutch cable operator, after the European Commission said in August that it needed more time to investigate the deal (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 34). The EC set a new date of 3rd November 2014 by which it will decide whether to approve or reject Liberty Global’s proposed acquisition of Ziggo. In response, Liberty Global has set a new deadline for shareholders of 4th November 2014.
