The Eurozone was put up for sale a few months after it was bought by Czech Media Invest by French concern Lagader. The Czech company took Eurozet together with Lagardère's radioactive substances in the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia, paying 73 million euros. The transaction was announced in April 2018, and in June the Competition and Consumer Protection Office expressed its consent to its application in Poland.
At the beginning of December 2018, virtualnemedia.pl announced that Eurozet's offer was made by the Fratria Group. Agora, ZPR Media and PMPG Polskie Media were also among the potentially interested parties.
In mid-January the money.pl portal said Polish investor Zbigniew Jakubas wants to buy Media Invest Radio ZET from the Czech Republic.
The Eurozet group includes ZET, Antyradio, Meloradio (until September last year, ZET Gold) and Chillizet and websites, as well as ZET, the radio and television commercial, and the Eurozet Live Event Agency.
