Kinnevik intends to divest majority of its shareholding in Millicom

(Reuters) - Swedish investment company Kinnevik AB said it plans to divest its shareholding in telecommunications and media company Millicom International Cellular SA through a public offering and a distribution to Kinnevik’s shareholders.
