万达拟收购瑞士盈方体育传媒集团


今天上午,万达集团正式宣布收购瑞士盈方体育传媒集团。万达集团牵头三家知名机构及盈方管理层,战胜11家来自全球的竞争对手,以10.5亿欧元成功并购总部位于瑞士的盈方体育传媒集团100%的股权。其中万达集团控股68.2%。

盈方是全球第二大体育市场营销公司,也是全球最大的体育媒体制作及转播公司之一。该公司拥有的版权涵盖25个体育项目,在足球和冬季运动领域排名全球第一。在足球领域的合作遍及国际(如:国际足联)、国家(如:德国足协、意大利足协)、联赛(如意甲(微博专题) )、俱乐部(如:AC米兰(官方微博数据) )等多层级;盈方与冬奥会七个大项的体育组织保持长期合作。在夏季运动方面盈方拥有丰富资源,其中包括CBA的市场和媒体版权。2014年,盈方的收入为8亿欧元。

Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda will buy Swiss sports marketing firm Infront Sports & Media with a group of investors for $1.19bn (£780m).

Wanda will buy 68.2% of the firm from private equity company Bridgepoint, but it did not name the other shareholders.

Infront holds broadcasting rights to some of the world's biggest sporting events like the football World Cup.

The firm's chief executive is Philippe Blatter, nephew of Fifa president Sepp Blatter.

The Fifa president has faced criticism in the past for awarding Infront television rights for World Cups.

Wanda is one of China's biggest property developers and has made a series of high-profile acquisitions.

Last month, it made headlines for plans to invest $1bn in a property near Australia's Sydney Harbour, along with buying a 20% stake in Spanish football club Atletico Madrid for $52m.

The firm also owns US cinema chain AMC and luxury British yachtmaker Sunseeker.

The company is led by Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin, who has pushed the firm's plans to expand overseas and diversify its business.(via BBC)
