Warner Bros. Seeks Acquisitions
Jun 26 14
Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. seeks acquisitions. Warner Bros is eyeing acquisition opportunities in France and other areas after completing its takeover of Shed Media Group and Eyeworks. Jeffrey Schlesinger, president of Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution, said the takeovers will lay the groundwork for its next chapter of growth outside the US. He ruled out any further large acquisitions in the UK - dismissing bids for companies such as Zodiak Media Group and Tinopolis - but said there were "white spots" of interest around the world. "If you look at the world map, we're happy with the UK. We now have Eyeworks that covers a lot of the map, but there's a couple of countries that still have white spots that we'll look at and either licence or build or buy. For instance, Eye- works doesn't have an operating company in France and that's a pretty big country," he said. Schlesinger added that it would also consider opportunities in Japan, China and Russia, although he admitted these territories are not priorities. "Our focus in this next chapter will be to properly integrate [Shed Media and Eyeworks] and spread the magic that is Warner Bros to help them feel part of one of the best production companies in the world," he said.
