Eurazeo hat geschrieben:Exclusive discussions initiated with PAI Partners to sell Asmodee

Paris, July 20, 2018 - Eurazeo is pleased to announce the launch of exclusive discussions with PAI Partners for the sale of its stake in Asmodee, a leading international games publisher and distributor, based on an enterprise value of €1.2 billion.

As the publisher of some of the best known franchises internationally, such as Catan, Ticket to Ride, Splendor and Dobble/Spot it !, and a distributor of Pokémon and Magic trading cards, Asmodee has emerged in recent years as one of the highest performing and most innovative players in its market, globally.

Driven by Stéphane Carville and his teams and supported by Eurazeo, the company has transformed substantially, from a Franco-European distributor in 2013 to a global publisher today, capitalizing on the value of its intellectual property. In four years, revenue grew from €125 million, generated 48% in France, to €442 million, generated 75% internationally, representing an average annual growth rate of 37%. At the same time, publishing revenues increased to nearly two-thirds of games sales. The Group completed 20 acquisitions during this period, representing over €140 million in revenue.

Eurazeo’s sales proceeds from this transaction could total around €580 million for Eurazeo and its investment partners, and €435 million for Eurazeo’s stake representing a return on its initial investment of 4.0x and an IRR of 35%.

Under French law, the signature of a purchase agreement is subject to a preliminary information and consultation process involving employee representatives. The disposal is could be finalized by Q4 2018, following the completion of this process and supervisory authority approval.

Ich sag denn doch mal was... diese Wachstumszahlen haben doch mit Zukäufen zu tun und nichts mit einem exorbitanten Marktwachstum oder gewonnenen Verdrängungswettkampf. Das wird so'n VC doch wohl merken, bevor er kauft, oder...?

Hallo,
wird auf die Frage hinauslaufen, wer für das Produkt der erfolgreichere Vertrieb ist.
Ihr Studio Lookout Spiele vertreibt auch über Altenburger.

Das kann aber auch daran liegen, dass ein bestehender Vertrag noch eine längere Laufzeit und noch nicht gekündigt werden konnte. Da können wir alle nur spekulieren.

Wenn ich "unkündbare", langfristige Vertriebsvereinbarungen abschließen konnte, dann könnte man das auch als ein Erfolg verbuchen. ;-)

Ich schrieb "noch nicht gekündigt", nicht "unkündbar". Aber ich räume ein, das war schlecht formuliert. Denn normalerweise kann man einen solchen Vertrag jederzeit kündigen, aber nur zu einem vertraglich vereinbarten Stichtag endet dann die Vertragslaufzeit.

Wenn 2 Firmen einen neuen Vertriebsvertrag schließen, hat dieser üblicherweise erst mal eine Mindestlaufzeit. Diese liegt nach meiner Erfahrung oft bei 2 oder 3 Jahren. (Andere Werte sind natürlich ebenfalls denkbar.)
