Liberty Global Intends To Launch A Voluntary And Conditional Cash Offer For The Shares Of Telenet Group Holding NV

Liberty Global, Inc. (“Liberty Global” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB and LBTYK) today announced that it is intending to launch a voluntary and conditional cash offer (the “Intended Offer”), for all of the Telenet Group Holding NV (“Telenet”) (Euronext Brussels: TNET) shares and other securities giving access to voting rights that it does not already own or that are not held by Telenet. Liberty Global has been the controlling shareholder in Telenet since February 2007 and currently owns, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Binan Investments B.V., 50.4% of Telenet’s outstanding issued share capital (excluding treasury shares). The Intended Offer will be based on a price of €35.00 per ordinary share.

A price of €35.00 per ordinary share represents a premium of approximately 14% over the adjusted average volume weighted closing price of approximately €30.67 for the one-month period to September 18, 2012 pro forma for the €3.25 capital reduction paid by Telenet on August 31, 2012.

Liberty Global’s Intended Offer will be subject to customary and normal conditions including (i) Liberty Global and its affiliates having acquired or holding, upon completion of the Intended Offer, at least 95% of the outstanding Telenet shares and voting rights and (ii) no material adverse change having occurred with respect to the financial situation or prospects of Telenet and in the financial markets in general. The Intended Offer will possibly be followed by a delisting of Telenet and a squeeze-out offer.

Liberty Global has advised Telenet’s board members of its intentions. In respect of Telenet’s intended buyback offer as announced in Telenet’s press release dated August 13, 2012, Liberty Global refers to the press release of Telenet released on September 20, 2012 (Brussels time).

This announcement is not a formal binding tender offer under the Royal Decree of the Belgian Law dated April 1, 2007 on public take-over bids. Whether or not the Intended Offer will eventually be made as a formal binding offer depends on a number of conditions, including the outcome of the independent valuation commissioned by the independent board members in comparison to the proposed price per share, overall financial market conditions, any material business or financial developments at Telenet and Liberty Global’s ability to raise satisfactory financing.
