As part of a new corporate strategy Swedish concern Eniro AB decided to sell its share in Belarusian-Swedish joint venture Eniro Belfakta LLC to German media company Heinze Median Grupp.
According to the company’s Director General Oleg Teterev, the decision to sell the share was brought about by the change of the Swedish concern’s strategy. Eniro AB leadership will concentrate efforts only in the Scandinavian and European directions and therefore decided to close down Eniro-East department, which included the Baltic States, Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.
