group’s former owner Valeriy Khoroshkovsky sold 100 percent of Inter Media Group Limited to Firtash, one of Ukraine’s most powerful oligarchs whose
fortune is estimated by Korrespondent magazine to be $3.2 billion.
“Thus, control over Inter, NTN, K1, Mega, Enter-Film, K2, Pixel and MTV goes over to GDF Media Limited, after an agreement is received from the Anti-monopoly committee,” Inter’s statement says.
The statement said the company was valued at $2.5 billion. But a source familiar with the deal said Firtash acquired his new stake for $1.25 billion.
