  上海国鸣投资管理公司参与收购美国福布斯集团

  SHANGHA GM INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT COMPANY ANNOUNCED ITS PARTICIPATION IN THE ACQUISITION OF FORBES MEDIA

  上海国鸣投资管理有限公司日前宣布参与收购美国媒体巨擘福布斯集团。这是继中国企业以26亿美元并购美国AMC 影院公司之后,另一个令人瞩目的重大海外媒体购并案。为了确保交易的完成,国鸣投资已经以鸭子划水地完成了收购战略布局,包括接触国内及国外等多家银行以利境内的相关监管规定,并邀请硅谷著名风险投资家黄梓洋博士担任美国国鸣投资公司首席执行官及董事总经理,以利后续收购的顺利进行。

  New York, Jan 20th, 2014 -- Shanghai GM Investment Management Co., Ltd. ("Shanghai GM Investment" thereafter) has announced its participation in the acquisition of U.S. media giant, the Forbes Media. This can be a second major overseas media acquisition since a successful U.S. $ 2.6 billion AMC Entertainment acquisition deal by the Dalian Wanda Group. To ensure the completion of this transaction, Shanghai GM Investment Management has set up a series of strategic layout plans, including the initiating of the strategic alliance with Chinese domestic foreign banks to work on the relevant governmental regulatory requirements. To further ensure the subsequent acquisitions procedures to run smoothly, Shanghai GM Investment invite Eric Huang, PHD., the well-known venture capitalist from Silicon Valley (U.S.A.), to join its newly established US GM Capital and serve as the CEO and managing director.

  日前国鸣投资管理有限公司已经與多家美国知名的投资银行聯繫并将进行委任,以便与卖方的代表德意志银行进行进一步磋商。投行的选择将于近日内完成。目前国鸣投资集团已积极地估算收购定价.价格将基于之前亚马逊(AMAZON)收购知名报业华盛顿邮报(WASHINGTON POST)及彭博(BLOOMBERG)收购商业周刊(BUSINESSWEEK)做精准的同业比较。收购金额包括之前福布斯集团向ELEVATION PARTNERS私募基金公司借款的2.64亿美元及后续运营资金。经过2个月调研和讨论, 国鸣投资管理有限公司董事会一致同意以3.8亿美元现金收购福布斯100%股权.

  Shanghai GM Investment Management Limited has been also initiating contact with several well-known U.S. investment banks. It will then appoint one of them to work with the Deutsche Bank, the Forbes representative. The process of selecting the US investment bank will be completed in a few days. In addition, GM Investment has been actively working on the offering price. The offering price of acquisition will be very comparable to the acquisition cost between other similar businesses in the media industry, such as the previous deals of the well-known medias, the deal of Washington Post to Amazon, and the deal of Businessweek to Bloomberg. Shanghai GM Investment announced that the total offering price will include a $264 million payable loan from ELEVATION PARTNERS to Forbes and the subsequent working capital. After two months of research and discussions, the board of Shanghai GM Investment Management Limited has unanimously agreed to a $380 million offering price in cash to acquire 100% of Forbes' equity.

  国鸣投资往年的业绩及投资理念一直得到中国专业财经杂志的广泛报导。总裁秦毅表示,所有收购的资金来源将是百分之百国鸣投资自有资金。这也是国鸣投资对福布斯集团董事会及所有员工的长期承诺。但考量到商务部审批的进度,国鸣投资将在美国成立特殊目的公司(SPV),先行进行多家银行联贷及融资以确保收购交易的完成。

  Shanghai GM Investment has been widely published by China's major finance &business magazines by its excellent company's performance and investment portfolios. According to Mr. Qi Yi, the CEO of Shanghai GM Investment, 100% of the funding of this acquisition will come from GM Investment's own fund. "Also," stated Mr. Qi, "GM Investment guarantees that this acquisition will be the long-term commitment to Forbes and its employees." However, taking consideration of the lengthy progress to receive the approval of the Ministry of Commerce in China, GM investment will incorporate a special purpose company (SPV) to carry out the bank's syndicated loans and financing in order to ensure the successful completion of the acquisition transaction.

  根据亚洲协会估计,到了2020年,中国的海外投资将达到一万亿美元。中国的企业正在摆脱产业链中处在下游的低端制造业,来寻求更高的利润,增加对外投资是解决这个问题的必要手段。其次,中国企业看重的是美国公司的品牌实力、营销和调研能力,进而步上全球化的脚步。此次国鸣投资收购福布斯集团正是想倚赖福布斯的品牌实力及影响力来作为中美合作步入全球化的第一步。国鸣投资可以协助及深化中国10亿订户的需求,中国将是福布斯成长的新引擎,这是一个双赢的局面。

  The Asia Society estimates that by 2020, China's overseas investment will reach to one trillion U.S. dollars. Chinese enterprises are in the transitions, taking away the roles of traditional lower-ended manufacturing but looking for higher profits, investments, and business alliances. Chinese enterprises value the international acquisitions based on the acquired companies' brand strength, marketing resources, and research capabilities. Shanghai GM Investment Group projects that this acquisition will assist Forbes to strengthen its current brand name and reputation and will bring more business to China's media market. By the same token, this acquisition will also be the first milestone for GM Investment to step into for the global media acquisition business. In fact, GM Investment believes that Forbes can enter into a new business growth cycle through business alliances with Chinese companies, especially with GM Investment, which has a huge middle-class customer basis along with its strong growing media business. Through this business alliance and acquisition with GM Investment, Forbes can expand its business into China's market, and can expect to receive one billion more subscribers, therefore receiving higher income return worldwide. This acquisition will be a win-win situation.

  秦毅总裁进一步表示,国鸣投资近年来的投资及越来越多的中国企业海外收购案,让国鸣投资更有能力的在中国政府的审批上、相关单位的沟通上、海外投资的流程上、更有经验及因应对策。国鸣投资已经做好完全的收购战略准备,必定使得整体收购流程更为完善及顺畅。

  Mr. Qin Yi, the president of GM Investment, declared that GM Investment has diversified investment portfolio and years of experiences working with the Chinese government. This made GM Investment the best candidate and more capable to work with Chinese government officials to receive the government approval in the acquisition process and better communications with the relevant governmental agency. Mr. Qin Yi further indicated that GM investment has been well prepared to complete this acquisition, and to make the whole process work successfully based on the past experiences.

  国鸣投资投资管理有限公司与以善于抓住转型企业的投资机会著称。近年来秦毅总裁带领的国鸣成功的投资了一系列重组股及新兴产业公司,如苏宁云商,乐视网等知名企业,并积极参与其转型且得到傲人的业绩。此次国鸣投资收购福布斯将着眼于全球化布局,美国国鸣资本公司黄梓洋总裁表示,除了将完整保留原本福布斯业务板块并交由原本团队永续经营之外,将强化福布斯的品牌及跨足周边服务,其中包括房地产、商业教育、智能机器、在线医疗、网络安全等新经济的知识储备,中国初创企业家与美国对接活动等等。并且表示虽然了解这次的收购艰难,但是希望能够借于此次收购经验找出突破口,将国内团队及全球购并菁英一起锻炼,走上全球化。并为日后更大型的国际购并案打下基础。

  In the past years, GM Investment has made several successful investments in ST securities by restructuring corporations. These well-known investments include, but are not limited to, LETV and Sunning Enterprise. In the long-term plan after the acquisition, as stated by Eric Huang, PHD., GM Investment will focus on Forbes' global layout along with its existing business segments, resources, and marketing channels. Dr. Huang further stated that through this acquisition GM Investment can assist Forbes to apply its current priority web business onto different sectors. For example, through this strategic business alliance, Forbes can strengthen its brand name and expand its business further onto other business sector arenas, including the real estate market, business education, the development for emerging media companies, intelligent machines investment, online medical care system development, network security, and the start-ups in both China and U.S. media companies.

  除此之外,福布斯集团旗下的福布斯数位(FORBES DIGITAL)已经是美国第九大财经新闻网站。根据福布斯总裁Mike Perlis表示,今年底前数位营收部份尚可成长达25%。这次的友好收购将使国鸣可以在福布斯数位的平台之上,加上乐视网转型的经验,在开放数据讯息服务平台、云数据、及移动互联网等方面更紧密的运用。

  Currently, Forbes Digital is the ninth largest U.S. financial website in the digital media sector, with the projected revenue growth rate up 25% by the end of this year. GM Investment believes that through this acquisition, with its solid experiences in the transformation of LETV and through the alliance with Forbes' digital media platform, GM Investment can expand its business operations further and diversify its investments in the sectors including digital informatics services platform, cloud computing, and mobile internet.
