EXCLUSIVE: Fox Closing Deal For Dodgers’ TV Rights: Paying New Owner $6B-$7B For 25 Years; ‘We’re Out’ If Not Done By Nov. 30


It seems strangely logical that the highest-priced sports team in the world is about to score the richest TV deal ever in pro sports history. Insiders tell me that Fox Sports is close to clinching the exclusive TV rights for the Los Angeles Dodgers by paying between $6 billion and $7 billion over 25 years to put the team on its regional sports network in Southern California and of course its national Fox Broadcasting Company. Fox already shows the games on its Prime Ticket local cable channel but also has Fox Sports West here.

McGraw-Hill Sells Education Division to Private Equity Firm


The McGraw-Hill Companies agreed to sell its education division to a private equity firm, in a long-rumored move that will shake up the evolving educational publishing landscape.

 For months, McGraw-Hill has planned the spinoff of its education division into an independent company, but there was no public indication McGraw-Hill wanted to sell its new company. In the end, it agreed to sell the company to investment funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, an international firm based in New York City, for $2.5 billion.

 After regulatory review, the deal is expected to be closed in early 2013. That will leave McGraw-Hill with its financial information properties; the company will be renamed McGraw Hill Financial.

Black Friday weekend sees a record 247M shoppers and $59.1B in sales — almost half online


Almost 250 million Americans visited stores over the Black Friday weekend spending an average of $423 for total holiday sales of almost $60 billion, according to the National Retail Federation. That’s a new record, the NRF said — and28 percent of those weekend shoppers were at stores by midnight on Black Friday.

The numbers are up from 226 million people spending $398 each last year, and includes 89 million shoppers on Black Friday alone. They also may blow earlier predictions of $32 billion in sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday out of the water, although Monday sales, of course, are not yet included in these figures.

Private Equity Interest Shifts to Southeast Asia


Some of the world’s biggest private-equity firms have stepped up their presence in Southeast Asia this year, eager to benefit from the region’s growth. But even as the value of transactions surges, the region remains a tough place to make a deal.

 One key reason: Valuations are rising quickly as competition heats up for assets. Companies, particularly those in Japan and Korea, are looking there for growth, more so as growth stalls in India and China, say bankers and deal makers.

 These buyers are often happy to pay more than private-equity investors. “Our competition is very rarely private equity. Our real competition is strategic buyers,” as firms in similar industries are called, said Rodney Muse, managing partner of Kuala Lumpur-based Navis Capital. Private-equity transactions in Southeast Asia have totaled $3.6 billion so far this year, up from $1.3 billion last year, according to data from the Centre for Asia Private Equity.

 This year’s figure includes a $1.7 billion buyout of snack-food franchises KFC Holdings (Malaysia) Bhd 3492.KU 0.00%. and QSR Brands Bhd 9415.KU +0.15%. by European private-equity firm CVC Capital Partners, which hasn’t yet closed.

KKR and Blackstone Strike a Secondary Deal For Alliant


The trend of private-equity firms flipping assets to each other continues to be popular move. But KKR’s buyout of insurance brokerage firm Alliant Insurance Services from Blackstone marks a somewhat rarer triple-buyout.

 Blackstone had purchased Alliant in 2007 from PE firm Lindsay Goldberg for a price north of $1.1 billion, WSJ reported at the time. That makes this the third private-equity buyer to takeover one of the country’s biggest independent insurance brokerages.
