Ringier Reportedly In Talks To Buy Le Temps

Ringier AG is in talks with Tamedia AG (SWX:TAMN) to buy Le Temps. Local media reported that Le Temps may be acquired at an alleged price of between CHF 9 million and CHF 10 million. The report added that until now, Ringier and Tamedia controlled 46.25% of Le Temps each. However, this shareholders structure turned out to be an ineffective way to bolster Le Temps's growth and the two decided to search for an investor. Meanwhile, a strategic partner was not found and the owners agreed that Ringier would buy Tamedia's stake.
