    ◎中國騰訊收購UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP(UMG)股份交易,在2020新年前完成了。
    ◎騰訊控股12月31日通知其股東,由騰訊牽頭的財團已與(Vivendi)簽署購股協議,以收購(UMG) 10%的股份。以UMG 300億歐元(合336億美元)的企業價值估算,這意味著這項收購將有超過30億美元的資金流入Vivendi的保險箱。
    ◎騰訊牽頭的財團由騰訊音樂娛樂集團和未公開的全球金融投資者加入。日前有報導稱,騰訊正在轉向主權基金,以籌集完成UMG交易所需的資金。雙方已確認,騰訊可以在2021年1月15日之前,以相同的金額將其在UMG的持股比例增加至20%。
    ◎在財團與UMG交易完成之前,騰訊和UMG表示,他們還打算達成第二項協議,授予騰訊音樂娛樂公司(TME)一項選擇權,以收購UMG大中華區業務的少數股權。騰訊表示,該交易將獲得監管部門的批准和其他慣例成交條件,並有望在2020年上半年結束。

    詳細內文:

    They got it done before the new year.
    Tencent Holdings Ltd has today (December 31) informed its shareholders that a Tencent-led Consortium has signed a share purchase agreement with Vivendi to acquire 10% of Universal Music Group.
    The deal has been struck with UMG holding an enterprise value of €30bn ($33.6bn), meaning that over $3bn will land in Vivendi’s coffers as a result of the acquisition.
    The Tencent-led Consortium is joined by Tencent Music Entertainment Group and undisclosed ‘global financial investors’.
    Earlier this month, reports suggested that Tencent was turning to sovereign wealth funds in order to raise the capital needed to complete the UMG deal.
    The Tencent group can increase its stake in UMG to as much as 20% at the same valuation until January 15, 2021, the parties have confirmed.
    Prior to the closing of the Consortium-UMG transaction, Tencent and UMG say that they also intend to enter into a second agreement that grants Tencent Music Entertainment (TME) an option to acquire a minority equity stake in UMG’s Greater China business.
    This transaction will be subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close by the end of the first half of 2020, says Tencent.
    In a joint statement, the companies said: “Vivendi is very happy with the arrival of Tencent and its co-investors. They will enable UMG to further develop in the Asian market.
    “Tencent and the Consortium members are excited to support UMG’s growth through this investment. Together with Vivendi, Tencent and TME will work to broaden the opportunities for artists and to enrich experiences for music fans, further promoting a thriving music and entertainment industry.”
