United Group (Telemach, SBB, Total...) prodat KKR-u
Iz CME-jevog saopštenja nafilovanog birokratskim novogovorom - "Divestiture of Assets to Accelerate Deleveraging" Facepalm (što bi otprilike na srpskom značilo: prodaja imovine radi bržeg razduživanja) proizlazi da United Group NIJE kupio ništa osim dva navedena kanala (piše da su prodati samo vodeći kanali, tj. "emiterske operacije" Facepalm te firme), pa tako hrvatska Doma i slovenački Kanal A ostaju u CME-jevom vlasništvu.

Međutim, na drugom mestu piše da žele da se fokusiraju na veća tržišta pa je nejasno kako to misle da postignu ako im u vlasništvu ostaju manji kanali u Hrvatskoj i Sloveniji.

Pregovori o kupovini ova dva vodeća privatna kanala na hrvatskom i slovenačkom tržištu su očigledno vođeni već neko vreme, jer se Nova u SBB-ovoj mreži u Srbiji pojavila krajem prošle godine, dok Domu nisu uvrstili u ponudu.

Quote:Central European Media Enterprises Announces Divestiture of Assets to Accelerate Deleveraging
July 10, 2017

HAMILTON, Bermuda, July 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:CETV) (Prague Stock Exchange:CETV) today announced that it has agreed to sell its leading broadcast operations in Croatia (“Nova TV”) and in Slovenia (“POP TV”) to Slovenia Broadband S.à r.l., a subsidiary of United Group B.V. (“United Group”), subject to certain closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to close by year-end.

Highlights of the transaction:

   Cash purchase price is €230.0 million (approximately $262.5 million), subject to customary working capital adjustments.  The combined OIBDA for Nova TV and POP TV for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017 was $13.8 million.
   Proceeds will be used to repay the €250.8 million term loan due 2018, which based on our results from the period ended March 31, 2017 would have reduced CME’s net leverage ratio from 6.3 times to 5.1 times.
   CME's current average borrowing cost is expected to decrease 275 basis points to 4.5% upon repayment of the 2018 term loan following closing of the transaction.
   Accretive to CME’s OIBDA margin as well as free cash flow, since the cash generated by the Slovenian and Croatian operations will be more than offset by estimated savings of at least $30.0 million of interest costs annually.

Michael Del Nin, Co-Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This represents a transformational moment in the history of CME. We have always had a great set of assets, and this transaction underscores the enduring attractiveness of broadcasters in the region. It also moves us significantly closer to our long-held goal of establishing a more appropriate leverage profile for our operations. Once closed, the cash proceeds from this sale will greatly accelerate our plans for debt reduction, lowering our net leverage ratio by about one turn, cutting our current average borrowing rate by more than a third, and helping us to save over $30.0 million in annual interest costs.”

Christoph Mainusch, Co-Chief Executive Officer, added: “We are very proud of these well-run businesses in Croatia and Slovenia, and the people working there whose efforts have made the channels consistent market leaders. We are firm believers in the importance of television as a medium, and plan to continue operating television stations with scale in a more focused footprint of our largest markets. We were pleased that the United Group, majority owned by the US investment firm KKR and backed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, shares our outlook for local content on television and we believe they will be excellent stewards of these important businesses in the region going forward.”

LionTree Advisors acted as financial advisor to the Company with respect to this transaction.

CME is a media and entertainment company operating leading businesses in six Central and Eastern European markets with an aggregate population of approximately 50 million people. CME currently broadcasts 36 television channels in Bulgaria (bTV, bTV Cinema, bTV Comedy, bTV Action, bTV Lady, and Ring.bg), Croatia (Nova TV, Doma, Nova World and MiniTV), the Czech Republic (Nova, Nova 2, Nova Cinema, Nova Sport 1, Nova Sport 2, Nova International, Nova Action and Nova Gold), Romania (PRO TV, PRO TV International, Acasa, Acasa Gold, PRO Cinema, Sport.ro, MTV Romania, PRO TV Chisinau and Acasa in Moldova), the Slovak Republic (TV Markíza, Markíza International, Doma and Dajto), and Slovenia (POP TV, Kanal A, Brio, Oto and Kino). CME is traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market and the Prague Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “CETV”.

A evo i KKR-ovog saopštenja iz koga pak proizlazi da su kupili sve što CME ima u Hrvatskoj i Sloveniji - kažu da kupuju medijski portfolio CME-ja u Hrvatskoj i Sloveniji koji obuhvata i Novu i Pop TV, a ne deo tog portfolija koji čine samo te dve TV stanice.

To je dakle OIBDA po rezultatima za 2, 3. i 4. kvartal 2016. i 1. kvartal 2017.

Evo ukupne OIBDA-e za poslovanje u Hrvatskoj i Sloveniji po izveštajima:

Dakle, za Hrvatsku crvenom bojom zaokružene stavke daju 8,26 miliona $, a za Sloveniju 5,51 miliona $, u zbiru 13,77 miliona $ (negativni brojevi su dati u zagradi, a zarez razdvaja hiljade pošto je u pitanju engleski sistem). To će reći da United Group, tj. njegova filijala Slovenia Broadband ipak kupuje sve što CME ima u Hrvatskoj i Sloveniji.

Očigledno im je bilo bitnije da stave sav onaj mumbo-jumbo od novogovora u saopštenje nego da jasno napišu šta sve prodaju.

Definicija OIBDA-e na engleskom:

AD su udeli u gledanosti kanala za ceo dan (all day), a PT za večernji udarni termin (prime time). Navedeni podaci za obe zemlje odnose se na ciljnu starosnu grupu 18-54.

Tradicionalno zemaljski kanali Pop TV i Kanal A u Sloveniji od početka godine dostupni su samo u kablu i vlasnici uzimaju masne pare za njih i ostala svoja 3 kablovska kanala - iznos će sledeće godine dostići skoro 5 evra po korisniku kablovske od manjih operatora, dok veći imaju popust. Taman će se lepo po ucenjivačkoj praksi uklopiti u SBB, tj. njegovu matičnu firmu.

Redovna cena (nakon isteka promo perioda) osnovnog paketa kablovske, IPTV-a ili satelitske TV u Sloveniji inače već dostiže 20-tak evra: Totalov najosnovniji paket nakon isteka promo perioda košta 19,5 evra, kod Telemacha (isto SBB ova matična grupacija United group) 22 evra, a kod Telekoma Slovenije 19-20.

U Sloveniji se inače po AGB Nielsenovim podacima svega 8% gledalaca oslanja na zemaljsku TV, a i to su verovatno stariji korisnici slabije platežne moći koji se ne preklapaju mnogo sa ciljnom grupom ovih kanala.

Dakle, prodati kanali u ovom trenutku uzimaju više od polovine prihoda od TV oglašavanja na hrvatskom, odnosno skoro 3/4 prihoda od TV oglašavanja na slovenačkom tržištu.

Uglavnom, mogli bi Nova tv, Pop tv i ostale kupljene kanale gledati na Total TV
Pa ti kanali su već na Totalu. Samo ne srpskom.
pa i da ubace na Srpski total pola sadrzaja bice zatamljeno
