– Virgin Media CEO, Neil Berkett
Virgin Media has transformed the digital experience of millions of customers, catalyzed a deep-rooted change in the UK's digital landscape and delivered impressive growth and returns for our shareholders.
I'm confident that this deal will help us to build on this legacy. Virgin Media and Liberty Global have a shared ambition, focus on operational excellence and commitment to driving shareholder value.
The combined company will be able to grow faster and deliver enhanced returns by capitalizing on the exciting opportunities that the digital revolution presents, both in the UK and across Europe.
A US cable firm has confirmed that it will buy Virgin Media in a deal worth £10 billion. Liberty Global said the agreement would create "the world's leading broadband communications company".
