Markíza may change shareholder structure

US media firm CME, which owns a 34 percent stake in the country's most popular private TV channel Markíza, wants to become the broadcaster's full owner, daily SME reported.

Currently, Markíza is co-owned by the CME, A.R.J. and Mediainvest firms. The two latter own 50 and 16 percent respectively.

It is expected that the Slovak firms will decide whether to sell their stakes in the course of this week.

A.R.J.'s co-owner Ján Kováčik refused to comment on the information.

"I don't want to comment on the matter because our US partners have not received an official response from us," Kováčik said.
