HCMC – Yeah1 Group Corporation, whose YEG shares are listed on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange, has passed a plan to sell and acquire stakes in multiple firms, including buying shares of STV Group Multimedia Company.
Yeah1 looks set to buy almost 2.3 million shares, or a 51% stake, of STV Group Multimedia Company in the third quarter of this year to make STV Multimedia Company a subsidiary of Yeah1.
STV Group Multimedia Company was established in 2008, with its head office located in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh District. It mainly operates in television broadcasting.

Besides, Yeah1 will sell its entire stake in TNT Advertising Communication Corporation. As of March 31 this year, Yeah1 had a 100% voting right at TNT Advertising Communication Corporation.
