Report: Banijay close to acquiring Endemol Shine for €2B

Banijay Group SAS is close to clinching a deal to acquire Endemol Shine Group Ltd. for about €2 billion, London's Financial Times reported, citing sources.

Banijay may finalize an agreement with Endemol Shine co-owners Walt Disney Co. and U.S. private equity firm Apollo Global Management Inc. this week.

The French company reportedly began talks to acquire Endemol Shine in 2018 after the latter hired Deutsche Bank AG and Liontree to explore a sale.

Previously, other media companies, such as ITV PLC, Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., RTL Group SA unit FremantleMedia Ltd. and Liberty Global PLC, had also earlier expressed interest in acquiring Endemol Shine.
