Announced last October Polhem Infra, backed by three state owned AP Funds, have closed and fulfilled the acquisition of the Telia Carrier from Telia Group. Telia Carrier is the global leader in IP traffic and with Polhem Infra as the new owner, the company can now take the opportunity to grow even further. The transaction was done on a value of SEK 9,450 million on a cash and debt free basis.
