Li Ka-shing $50bn of investments in the UK
英媒:李嘉诚快买下英国了

李嘉诚在英国动作不断,最近他以102.5亿英镑(约合154亿美元)收购英国第二大的电信运营商O2电信商。这次大手笔的投资再次强化了李嘉诚作为英国最大的投资者之一的地位。

之前的收购清单:
李嘉诚在英国最早的投资是2000年和黄斥资36亿英镑收购英国Three电信商的电信运营牌照。

2002年,他向荷兰零售商Kruidvat Beheer买下屈臣氏集团和一些位于欧洲的商店。

2011年,李嘉诚24亿英镑买下Northumbrian自来水公司,这是英国主要的供应水和污水处理公司。

他还拥有南部自来水公司(Southern Water)、 威尔士能源公司(Wales and West Utilities)、英国电力网络(UK Power Networks)和多个英国优质港口例如(Thamesport and Harwich ports)。

Li Ka-shing is no stranger to investing in the UK, making his first acquisition in the country 20 years ago. His companies now provide Britons will all manner of goods and services, from perfume and smartphones to electricity and sewage treatment.



The deal now being finalised between Hutchison Whampoa and O2 — worth £10.25bn — would mark his biggest investment in the country so far. If completed, it will take spending by his various companies on UK acquisitions to around $50bn since 1995, according to Dealogic.

Here are just some of Mr Li’s UK assets:
● Ports — Hutchison Ports Holdings has a global network of facilities, including operations at three locations in the UK — Harwich, Felixstowe and London Thamesport.

● Cosmetics — Now part of Mr Li’s AS Watson retail empire, Superdrug was snapped up from Dutch retailer Kruidvat Beheer in 2002. Watson was due to undertake an initial public offering last year, but changed course and sold a stake to Singapore’s Temasek instead.

● Phones — Hutchison spent $7.6bn to buy the license for the Three mobile phone network in 2000. A combined Three and O2 would give Hutchison the number one spot in the UK’s mobile market, from its current fourth position.

● Power — Previously Mr Li’s top UK acquisition, his Cheung Kong group bought the electricity distribution business from EDF in 2010 for £5.8bn. The company also provides gas in some parts of the country through its two distribution networks.

● Water — Cheung Kong’s other big infrastructure holding in the UK is Northumbrian Water, bought in 2011 for $7.6bn. The company also bought Wales and West Utilities in 2012, and holds a strategic stake in Southern Water.

● Rail — Agreed earlier this week, the £2.5bn takeover of Eversholt Rail will give Mr Li control of around a third of the passenger and freight trains in the UK, which are then leased to railway operators.(英语原文来自FT)
