Stampen divests stake in SBS Radio AB

Stampen has sold its 20% stake in SBS Radio AB to SBS Media Group Sverige. Stampen and SBS Media Group Sverige have been co-owners of SBS Radio AB since 2009. Upon completion of the transaction, SBS Media Group Sverige will be the sole owner of SBS Radio, Sweden’s largest broadcasting company with 3,4 million FM listeners.

Stampen Group is one of Sweden’s largest newspaper owners and has digital media, printing operations, distribution companies and advertising-funded local newspapers.

Stampen has been advised by Mannheimer Swartling in various matters relating to broadcasting since the 90’s and now also in connection with the sale of shares in SBS Radio AB. Clas Nyberg was the partner responsible for the matter, primarily assisted by senior associate Emma Olnäs Fors. Niklas Sjöblom was the partner responsible for license- and trademark issues.
