Liberty Global (LBTYA, LBTYB, LBTYK) said that it agreed to make an all cash public tender offer for all publicly held shares of Sunrise Communications Group AG at a price of 110 per share Swiss francs. The offer values 100% of Sunrise's equity at 5.0 billion francs, representing a total enterprise value of 6.8 billion francs.

The offer represents a 32% premium to the 60-day volume weighted average price per share of 83.17 francs during the period up to August 11, 2020.

The tender offer is expected to commence by the end of August.
