STOCKHOLM--Tele2 AB said Friday that it expects to complete the divestment of T-Mobile Netherlands in the coming weeks.

The Sweden-based telecom company and Deutsche Telekom AG agreed last year to sell their respective 25% and 75% stakes in T-Mobile Netherlands to Apax Partners LLP and Warburg Pincus LLC in a deal valued at 5.1 billion euros ($5.6 billion).

Tele2 said it proposes that the full cash proceeds of the sale be distributed to its shareholders through an extraordinary dividend of 13 Swedish kronor ($1.38) a share in May.

All necessary regulatory approvals for the sale have been received and Tele2 said it expects the transaction to be closed in the coming weeks.
