Shareholders in Poland's largest media group Cyfrowy Polsat have agreed to a PLN 6.15bn ( EUR 1.48bn ) share issue to buy mobile operator Polkomtel in a share-swap deal, Reuters reported. The shareholders accepted a plan outlined by Polish billionaire Zygmunt Solorz-Zak to merge the two companies both of which are controlled by the media mogul to ease the group's debt burden.
