Tele1 Europe Holding AB (Nasdaq:TEUR) announced the launch of its initial public offering totaling approximately US$500 million.

The Company intends to list its shares on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and quote its ADSs on the Nasdaq stock market under the Ticker symbol "TEUR". The offering is structured as a global offering of ordinary shares and American Depositary Shares. It is expected to consist of approximately 33.3 million ordinary shares, comprised of approximately 28.3 million shares to be sold by the Company in a capital increase and approximately 5.0 million secondary shares to be sold by existing shareholders. The expected price range for the offering is US$14 to US$16 per ADS (SEK120.67 to SEK137.90 per share). The offering will consist of two tranches: an international tranche targeted at European and US investors, and a Swedish retail tranche.

The proceeds of the IPO will be used to fund the Company's expansion, continued roll-out of its pan-Nordic broadband network and potentially for selected acquisitions.

The offering will commence on Feb. 28 and the proposed sale to the public is anticipated to take place during the week of March 13.
