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.

Big Investors Flock to PICC Offering


The initial public offering of People's Insurance Co. (Group) of China Ltd., one of the biggest offerings in the world this year, is attracting a slew of large buyers ranging from U.S. insurer American International Group Inc.

 AIG -0.17% to the company that runs China's electric power grid. AIG is planning to invest $500 million in PICC, one of its biggest investments in Asia since being bailed out by the U.S. government during the financial crisis, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter. The planned investment in China's fourth-largest insurer would be a reversal for AIG, which was forced by the U.S. government to sell most of its crown jewel Asian life-insurance operation, AIA Group Ltd., to help repay bailout money.

 The IPO of PICC, which is seeking to raise up to US$3.6 billion, is the biggest offering of a Chinese state-owned company since 2010 and could mark a revival of the Hong Kong IPO market, which for the past three years has been the world's hottest but has suffered this year as investors soured on Chinese companies and grew worried about slowing growth.

A Trillion-Dollar Transfer Of Wealth Is About To Hit Silicon Valley'


I was having a drink in San Francisco with Sanu Desai, a longtime Silicon Valley investment banker whose track record includes helping Amazon go public back in 1997. We were talking about how attention has been shifting away from business-to-consumer companies and back toward the business-to-business sector, when Desai said something startling:

 "We're about to see a trillion-dollar transfer of wealth in Silicon Valley," he said. "We're still in the very early days of this."

Asia Private Equity Weekly News, November 19, 2012


A GROUP led by Singapore property firm Overseas Union Enterprise Ltd launched a S$13.1 billion ($10.7 billion) bid for Fraser and Neave Ltd (F&N), challenging a takeover offer for the conglomerate from Thailand's third-richest man.

CARYLE GROUP and Seven Group Holdings have hired Goldman Sachs for a possible sale of Australia's top equipment hire firm after failing to proceed with other options, including an A$800 million ($831 million) initial public offering earlier this year.

 TWO U.S. securities regulators said more safeguards for investors should be considered before a rule lifting the ban on general advertising for private offerings is adopted, with one going so far as to call for a complete re-write of the proposal.

Shadow Banking Grows to $67 Trillion Industry, Regulators Say


The shadow banking industry has grown to about $67 trillion, $6 trillion bigger than previously thought, leading global regulators to seek more oversight of financial transactions that fall outside traditional oversight.

The size of the shadow banking system, which includes the activities of money market funds, monoline insurers and off- balance sheet investment vehicles, “can create systemic risks” and “amplify market reactions when market liquidity is scarce,” the Financial Stability Board said in a report, which utilized more data than last year’s probe into the sector.

Advent International, Boston private equity firm, raises $10.8 billion buyout fund


Advent International, a Boston private equity firm, said it has raised a $10.8 billion buyout fund, the largest of its kind launched since the financial crisis. The fund, which will invest in mid-sized buyout deals, raised about half the money from large investors in North America; the other half came from Europe, Asia and the Middle East, according to the firm’s managing partner, David Mussafer. It took about eight months to raise the new fund, which Mussafer called a success, given that “There’s a belief that, overall, the available capital for private equity is down 50 percent.”

France Telecom Says Private Equity Interested in U.K. Unit


 France Telecom SA has received interest from private-equity firms seeking a minority stake in its 50-50 U.K. venture with Deutsche Telekom AG, Chief Executive Officer Stephane Richard said. The largest French phone company hasn’t made a decision on the future of the business, recently renamed EE, and could instead go for an initial public offering of its shares, Richard said yesterday in an interview at an industry conference in Montpellier, France.

 “We want to keep control of the asset, and so do the Germans,” Richard said. “That said, there is a possibility that we can give ourselves some financial headroom by opening EE’s capital to a minority shareholder or through an IPO, but we haven’t yet decided.” France Telecom jumped as much as 2.4 percent from its intraday level yesterday after Richard’s comments.

A stake sale in the unit would help France Telecom bolster its finances as intensifying rivalry at home and Europe’s slowing economy hurt earnings. Its debt rating was lowered for the first time in a decade last month and the carrier cut its dividend to keep borrowings under control. EE may be valued at 7 billion pounds ($11 billion) to 7.7 billion pounds, based on a multiple of 5 to 5.5 times its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, according to Stephane Beyazian, an analyst at Raymond James Euro Equities.
