Ringier and Axel Springer Plan to Establish Joint Venture in Switzerland
Dec 19 14
The Ringier and Axel Springer are planning to establish a further joint venture, in which each party will hold an equal stake. The two companies have already signed a letter of intent to that effect. The plan is for the new joint venture to encompass all the magazine titles Ringier publishes in the German-speaking and French-speaking regions of Switzerland, along with all their online offerings, as well as Le Temps, Ringier's French-language quality newspaper. Axel Springer, for its part, will transfer the operations of its Axel Springer Switzerland subsidiary to the new joint venture. Axel Springer Switzerland manages all the Swiss publishing operations of Axel Springer SE. The new joint venture will operate under the name of Ringier Axel Springer Medien Schweiz and will have its registered offices in Zurich. Ringier will consolidate the planned company. With the new company, the two partners intend to achieve a significant improvement in their competitive position in the market for Swiss readers and advertisers.
Ringier Reportedly In Talks To Buy Le Temps
Apr 14 14
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.
