In 2019 MTG was split in two. The spin-off Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) comprises MTG's TV and radio activities. NENT's shares were distributed among MTG's shareholders. Until 2018 the Stenbeck family controlled Modern Times Group (MTG) through the company Kinnevik. In August 2018 the company's shares in MTG was distributed among Kinnevik's shareholders. As a result the Stenbeck family's ownership was reduced to a small percentage.
