(AFP, Paris, 26) French television production group Banijay said today it has agreed to acquire Endemol Shine, a Dutch company that produces popular albums such as "Black Mirror" and "Blood Gangster".
Bennier, the world's leading producer and distributor of TV content, said in a statement that it would acquire a 100% stake in Endemol Shine. Endemol Shine's current stake is jointly owned by Walt Disney Company and Apollo Global Management, Inc.
Benjay and Endemol Shine did not disclose the purchase price, but the report said the valuation of the deal could be close to 2 billion euros (NT $ 68.5 billion).
The combined group will have some albums like "Black Mirror", "Versailles", "Peaky Blinders", "Big Brother" and "Cooking God" "Dong" (MasterChef) and so on.
However, prior to the completion of the acquisition, it must be reviewed by the regulatory body. (Translator: Chen Yuting / Approved: Zhang Youzhi)
