Polsat takes near full ownership of Eleven Sports’ Polish operation

Polish media company Telewizja Polsat has acquired more shares in the Polish operation of sports broadcaster Eleven Sports Network, now owning 99.9 per cent of the company.

Polsat acquired an additional 3338 shares from Eleven Sports Network Ltd this month. It had already acquired a controlling stake in Eleven’s Polish operation last year when it paid €38m (£42.1m)  for a 50-per-cent plus one share.

Eleven’s parent company Aser has retained one share in the operation. Local reports of the deal cite information published by the National Court Register (KRS), which provides information on the legal status of registered entities In Poland.

The deal does not effect Eleven’s other international operations.
