Update on sale of National Licence by Spectrum Investments

Shore Capital, the independent investment group specialising in equity capital markets, principal finance and alternative asset management, announces an update regarding Spectrum Investments Limited (“Spectrum”), in which it holds a 59.26% interest.

Shore Capital announced on 31 March 2015 that Spectrum’s subsidiary, DBD, had signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement to sell its interest in national radio spectrum licences together with six regional radio spectrum licences to Deutsche Telekom AG for €15.45 million (“the Transaction”). The customary completion conditions have now been satisfied save for an approval by the German telecommunications regulator, Bundesnetzagentur, which is still awaited.  A further update will be provided to shareholders in due course.
