U.S. fund withdraws from bid for Australia’s Fairfax Media

U.S. private equity giant TPG Capital Sunday walked away from its offer to buy Fairfax Media, with reports saying the embattled Australian media empire would spin-off its property advertising business instead.

TPG and its partner Canada’s Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board was in a bidding war with U.S. investment firm Hellman & Friedman — former owners of U.S. multimedia company Getty Images and German publisher Axel Springer — over Fairfax.

TPG made an offer in May of 1.20 Australian dollars (U.S. $0.92) a share that valued Fairfax at 2.82 Australian dollars-2.87 billion Australian dollars, while Hellman & Friedman proposed to buy the firm at 1.225 Australian dollars-1.250 Australian dollars a share.

But after a period of due diligence, TPG said it was withdrawing from the sale process.

“The TPG/OTTP consortium has today [Sunday] exited the Fairfax due diligence process and has elected not to proceed with an offer,” a TPG spokesman said in a statement.

“TPG thanks the Board and senior management team of Fairfax for the integrity and focus they have brought to the discussions.”

Hellman & Friedman on Friday sent a letter to Fairfax’s board saying it had not walked away, but did not submit a binding bid, Fairfax publication The Australian Financial Review reported.

Both offers were for the entire firm, which includes mastheads The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and Financial Review, the lucrative property advertising Domain Group and its events and digital business units.

Without any binding offers, Fairfax was expected to end the buyout process Monday and instead announce plans first flagged in February to spin-off Domain, the Financial Review added.

Fairfax had previously said it wanted to list Domain as a separate entity while retaining up to 70 percent of its shares.

Like its global peers, Fairfax has slashed jobs and costs owing to falling circulation and advertising revenue.Speech

  • 股票配资是一种放大的股票投资工具,将用户的自有资金按照一定配资倍数放大给投资者使用;投资者只需支付相应的保证金及资金管理费。
    股票配资能有效的放大投资收益。在系统性或确定性机会出现时,投资者运用配资方案,可以获得自有资金基础上1—10倍的资金,能够将收益水平放大到几倍。投资者需要注意,配资工具在放大收益也会放大亏损风险,投资者应在投资机会比较确定并管理好风险的前提下使用,投资一些相对稳健的股票。
    对股票配资稍微了解一点的人都应该认识到进行股票配资,放大了交易的比例,扩大收益。首先股票配资使一部分缺少资金的人能抓住有利的进场时间迅速获利;其二,股票配资可以使那些正做其他生意的人不至于因为把资金投入期货市场股票市场而耽误生意的运营;其三,股票配资,需要由出资方监督,这样对股票配资者来说就是一种提醒,使股票配资者能及时止损,使他们不至于把全部资金全部投入以至于亏完,通过阶梯式的资金投入也一定程度上限制了投资者的赌博心理,为调整操作思路赢得了时间。
    股票等电子化的金融投资方式本身对于大部分中国投资者来说就是一个比较新型的东西。在中国发展起来的时间不是很长,但由于其突出的优势,这几年发展速度惊人,可以说股票基本上已经达到全民皆股的规模。
    尚盈股票配资模式只要运作合理,是有一定好处的,同时也提高了资金的使用效率,对合作双方来说都是比较有利的。
    多数投资者具有良好的盈利能力和风险控制能力,但受制于自身资金量较小,其操盘能力和盈利能力无法得到充分发挥。而解决这一问题最直接的方法就是扩大操作资金。利用资金杠杆,在大行情中,只要把握一次机会即能实现利益最大化。股票配资就是为具备丰富操盘经验及良好风险控制能力的投资者提供的放大其操作资金的业务。
    配资炒股合作中的双方称为操盘方和出资方,操盘方是指需要扩大操作资金的投资者,出资方是指为操盘方提供资金的个人。合作过程如下:
    首先,操盘方与出资方签署合作协议,约定股票配资费用及风险控制原则;
    其次,操盘方作为承担交易风险的一方,向出资方交纳风险保证金(此为操盘方自有资金),以获得出资方提供的 1-10倍于其自有资金的交易账户;
    之后,由操盘方独立操作该账户,同时,出资方按合同约定对该账户进行风险监控,以确保其出资安全。
