Strategic review of Sergel

TeliaSonera has initiated a strategic review of its Nordic and Baltic credit management services (CMS) and debt purchase business, the Sergel Group. Sergel has historically been the in-house collection unit of TeliaSonera but has gradually expanded its strategic focus to also provide CMS and debt purchase services to external customers. There are however no decisions made at this stage with respect to a structural solution. In 2015, Sergel’s net sales amounted to approximately SEK 0.8 billion, reported within TeliaSonera’s ‘Other Operations’.
