Canal Plus Sale Stalls
Jan 31 14
Promotora de Informaciones, S.A. (CATS:PRS) (Prisa) is finding it difficult to sell its 56% stake in PRISA Televisión, S.A.U (Canal Plus) for the expected €1 billion. None of the financial proposals have met its expectations and Prisa has decided to extend the initial January 31, 2014 deadline for binding offers to February 24, 2014. Several groups have expressed their interest in acquiring the stakes. The most likely candidate is Telefónica, S.A. (CATS:TEF), with a 22% stake in Canal Plus, whom Prisa is holding negotiations. The problem is that Telefonica would only be willing to pay between €500 million-€600 million for the majority of stakes. Other possible bidders are Societe d'Edition de Canal Plus S.A. (ENXTPA:AN), Rupert Murdoch, Liberty Global Ventures and Al Jazeera Finance, but none of them would offer €1 billion for Canal Plus as hoped for by Prisa. It is understood that Murdoch only offered €200 million for the stakes.
Prisa TV Workers Go on Strike
May 28 13
37 channels in Spain are to be affected by a one-week strike by Prisa TV workers. The strike could also affect sport broadcasts, the rights of which are exclusively owned by Prisa. Prisa TV's parent company recently announced that is going to take over the television subsidiary, and the employees are afraid that the new agreement will set the ground for future layoffs. The company proposal makes the outsourcing of some services easier. The company intends to reduce salaries due to the drop in profits during the first quarter of 2013, which was especially large for Canal+. However, the union argues that this isn't a good enough reason as Canal+ made a EUR 50 million profit in 2012. But the parent company is clearly losing money. During 2012, EUR 255 million losses were declared and Prisa announced a strong plan for saving money, which includes the efficient use and reduction of administration. The strike will be effective until June 1, 2013 and will affect channels including Canal+1, Canal+Liga, Canal+ Deporte, Sportmania and Caza y Pesca.
