Сингапур: таиландский миллиардер близок к заключению сделки по покупке компании F&N

Таиландский миллиардер Чароен Сиривадханабхакди (Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi) близок к заключению сделки по приобретению сингапурского конгломерата Fraser & Neave (F&N) в связи с тем, что его конкурент Overseas Union Enterprise (OUE), также заинтересованный в покупке компании, не смог предложить более выгодные условия сделки. Напомним, что 18 января миллиардер предложил приобрести F&N за S$13,8 млрд ($11,2 млрд) или S$9,55 за каждую его акцию, что превзошло озвученные OUE S$9,08 за каждую бумагу компании.

Thai Billionaire Trumps Indonesian Rival In $11.2B Singapore Takeover

A drawn-out contest for control of Fraser & Neave, a Singapore-listed drinks-to-property group appears to be over. Last week Thai beer tycoon Charoen Sirivadhanabhakti sweetened his bid for the company, in which he already holds a major stake. A deadline for the rival bidder, Indonesia's Stephen Riady, to raise his offer to shareholders expired Monday. This clears the way for a tender offer from Charoen, who ranked third on FORBES' 2012 Thai Rich List with a $6.2 billion fortune. The size of the deal has excited interest from fixed-income bankers who anticipate that the winning side would need to tap debt markets. The deal is expected to close in the next month provided shareholders accept a formal tender bid.

Спор Японии и Китая бьет по карманам этих ведущих азиатских экономик

В последний раз спор между Японией и Китаем накалился в 2010 году из-за восьми необитаемых островов, экономические последствия ощущались менее месяца. В этот раз спад в третьей мировой экономике продлился дольше. Через четыре месяца после начала бойкота японским продуктам из-за островов в Восточно-Китайском море, продажи японских авто в Китае все еще восстанавливаются, китайские заводы отдают предпочтение южнокорейским поставщикам компонентов, США вновь стал крупнейшим рынком сбыта Японии вместо Китая. Территориальные претензии Китая растут, а так как торговый оборот между двумя странами утроился с 2000 года до более чем 300 миллиардов долларов, стоимость же конфликта продолжает расти. Последний раз всплеск произошел после того, как застройщик Куниоки Курихара продал три острова японскому правительству за 2.05 миллиарда иен (23 миллиона долларов) в сентябре, эту сделку Си Цзиньпин назвал «фарсом». Японские компании потратили или планируют потратить более 10 миллиардов долларов с января 2011 года на поглощения в азиатском блоке, как показали данные, собранные Bloomberg. В ноябре Kirin Holdings Co. поставила 2.2 миллиарда долларов на сингапурскую Fraser & Neave Ltd.’s. Китай, который также имеет споры с азиатскими странами в отношении островов в Южно-Китайском море, был предупрежден в прошлом месяце Вьетнамом о том, что не следует использовать экономику в политических целях.

Напомним, что 15 ноября OUE объявил о намерении заплатить за каждую акцию подразделения S$9,08, в то время как предложение Сиривадханабхакди составляло $7,3 млрд или S$8,88 за акцию.
