TBS scrambling for 'stable' investorsAbout 55 percent o

f Tokyo Broadcasting System Inc.’s outstanding shares will likely fall into the hands of long-term shareholders, sources close to the television broadcaster claimed Thursday.Quoting separate sources,

Jiji Press r

eported that more than 60 percent of the broadcaster’s outstanding shares could be acquired by friendly investors.TBS has reportedly been trying to secure “stable” shareholders to ward off a potential hostile takeover by Rakuten Inc., the sources said.Rakuten, operator of Japan’s biggest Internet shopping mall and TBS’ top st

akeholder, has proposed the two fi

rms integrate their managements. It is considering making a public tender offer for TBS shares in case the broadcaster rejects its proposal.According to the sources, TBS has been asking its business partners and affiliated broadcasters across the nation to maintain or increase their stakes in TBS.TBS has received assurances from these parties, as well as from some overseas investors who hold TBS shares, that they will not sell its stock, they said.Rakuten, headed by Hiroshi Mikitani, announced Wednesday that it had acquired 36,270,90

0 common shares, or 19.09 percent of TBS’ outstanding common shares, as of Tuesday.On Oct. 13, Rakuten surprised TBS and the business community by announcing it had acquired a 15.46 percent stake in the major TV broadcaster. The stake made Rakuten the broadcaster’s top shareholder.Rakuten, which has entered into a consultancy contract with

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. of the United States, is now preparing to raise capital, possibly in November, on a scale of 200 billion yen or so, sources familiar with the matter said.If TBS clearly rejects Rakuten’s management-integration proposal, Rakuten is likely to use the fresh capital to make a tender offer for TBS shares, the sources said.Under a prearranged defense measure, TBS can launch countermeasures if a hostile buyer shows up and obtains a stake of 20 percent or more. In Jun

e, TBS alloc

ated stock purchase warrants to Nikko Principal Investments Japan Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of its corporate financial adviser, Nikko Cordial Corp.The warrants, which can be exercised by Nikko Principal in the period 十字之上作文章打一肖 to June 30, 2007, are worth up to 80 billion yen.The antitakeover scheme calls on the TBS defense panel to submit a recommendation on whether TBS should issue the warrants in the event that a hostile buyer obtains a stake of over 20 percent.A final decision on whether to invoke the defense scheme is in the hands of the TBS board.If Nikko Principal converts all the warrants to TBS shares, it will be the biggest TBS shareholder, with a 21.1 percent stake. Rakuten’s stake in TBS would be diluted. TBS upset over buysStaf

f report Tokyo Broadcasting System Inc. said Thursday it sent a letter to Rakuten Inc. expressing “disappointment” over the online shopping mall operator’s acquisition of additional shares and repeating its plea that Rakuten not buy any more.TBS officials stressed that Rakuten’;s announcement Wednesday of the new share purchase had not affected its ef

forts to study the suitor’s merger proposal.Rakuten “is (the sort of) company that does such things,̶1; a senior TBS official told reporters.They said the firm’s special committee is working on another set of written questions to Rakuten on matters not directly mentioned in the proposal.TwitterFacebookLinkedInGET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMESIN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5Mail the editorError ReportRepublishingCommenting PolicyJOIN THE CONVERSATIONLATEST BUSINESS STORIESWorkplace equality 'decades away' in Britain as men dominate top jobsEquality for women at work is d
