Ziggo rubbishes IPO rumour

17 Jun 2008

In the wake of a Dutch press report in the Het Financiele Dagblad newspaper that cable operator Ziggo was preparing for an IPO, a spokesperson for the firm yesterday dismissed the rumour as ‘complete nonsense’. The paper based its article on statements made by Ziggo’s chief financial officer Walter Blom, but the cableco now says ‘We are certainly not preparing an IPO.’
