British Sky Broadcasting Reportedly Opens Talks To Acquire Sky Deutschland And Sky Italia

British Sky Broadcasting Group plc (LSE:BSY) is planning to acquire Rupert Murdoch’s pay-TV assets in Italy and Germany for perhaps as much as €10 billion, reported The Irish Times. British Sky Broadcasting has opened talks with Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (NasdaqGS:FOXA) to acquire Sky Deutschland AG (XTRA:SKYD) and Sky Italia S.r.l. One top 10 shareholder in British Sky Broadcasting told Reuters on condition of anonymity, "The asset is too good and the opportunity is too big to ignore it." The shareholder added that they would view the deal positively as long as they could agree reasonable terms. Sources familiar with the deal have told Reuters the talks are progressing well but that there are still many areas they need to find agreement on. British Sky Broadcasting declined to comment on the report.

Bskyb Is In Talks To Buy Sky Deutschland And Sky Italia

British Sky Broadcasting Group plc (LSE:BSY) (BSkyB) is in talks to buy Sky Deutschland AG (XTRA:SKYD) and Sky Italia S.r.l. in a €10 billion deal. James Rupert Murdoch, Co-Chief Operating Officer and Director of Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (NasdaqGS:FOXA) (21st Century), has looked at various options over the years to consolidate his TV holdings in Europe. 21st Century Fox is BSkyB's biggest shareholder. The latest proposal would see BSkyB, 39% owned by 21st Century Fox, buy Sky Italia and Sky Deutschland, which are 100% and about 55% owned by Fox, respectively. British regulators would likely want to examine any deal that would result in Murdoch increasing his overall stake in BSkyB. A source close to the talks said the current thinking was that Murdoch would not raise his holding in BSkyB above 39% as a result of a deal. Instead he could take cash to maintain his stake around that level in the combined company, analysts said. BSkyB said talks were still preliminary and no agreement had been reached on terms, value or transaction structure. "BSkyB believes at the right value, this combination would have the potential to create a world-class multinational pay TV group," the group said in a statement on May 12, 2014. "From time to time these conversations have included BSkyB, however no agreement between the parties has ever been reached," 21st Century Fox said. BSkyB also said it was not prepared to overpay for Sky Deutschland, noting that any potential agreement would be subject to the Sky Deutschland share price "continuing to trade on an undisturbed basis".
