Penguin in Random House deal 

 Pearson has spurned an approach made by News Corp to buy its book publisher Penguin in favour of a rival deal with Bertelsmann, the German media company.  

培生集团(Pearson)拒绝新闻集团(News Corp)收购企鹅出版社(Penguin)的要约,而选择与德国媒体公司贝塔斯曼(Bertelsmann)达成交易。  

Bertelsmannand Pearson,the education and publishing business which owns the Financial Times, signed a deal to merge their publishing arms Random House and Penguin in a joint venture.  

贝塔斯曼和教育及出版机构培生集团(英国《金融时报》母公司)签订了一项协议,将旗下出版机构兰登书屋(Random House)和企鹅出版社合并为一家合资公司。  

Marjorie Scardino, Pearson chief executive, said the merged company would have greater resources to invest in digital publishing which could include the development of a web platform selling books to consumers.  

培生集团首席执行官马乔里•斯卡迪诺(Marjorie Scardino)表示,合并后的公司将拥有更大的资源投资数字出版,可能包括开发一个向消费者销售图书的网络平台。  

Pearson executives said the deal with Bertelsmann had been signed without break clauses, reflecting their confidence in the transaction. Thomas Rabe, chief executive of Bertelsmann, said the two companies had signed “binding contracts”. “You should assume that this deal will go ahead,” he said.  

培生高管表示,与贝塔斯曼的协议并不包含分手条款,表明他们对此次交易的信心。贝塔斯曼首席执行官瀚韬(Thomas Rabe)认为,两家公司签订了“有约束力的合同”。他说:“你应该假定,这笔交易将得到完成。”  

News Corp was considering its options yesterday, but signed contracts will make it difficult for Rupert Murdoch’s media empire to overturn the deal.  

新闻集团昨日在考虑其选择,但已经签署的合约将会让鲁珀特•默多克(Rupert Murdoch)的媒体帝国很难逆转这笔交易。  

The announcement followed a weekend race to finish talks that started five months ago. When the FT reported the possibility of a deal late last week, News Corp, which owns HarperCollins, approached Pearson informally “at the highest level” about a possible cash counterbid.  

签约宣布之前,上周末各方忙于完成在5个月前启动的协商。英国《金融时报》上周晚些时候报道签订协议的可能性之后,旗下拥有柯林斯(HarperCollins)的新闻集团,与培生集团“最高层”就可能的现金要约进行了非正式接触。  

Pearson executives said that an outright sale of Penguin had been considered but that it would have triggered significant capital gains tax liabilities.  

培生高管表示,曾考虑出售企鹅出版社,但此举可能引发巨大的资本利得税负担。
