PLDT WITHDRAWS BID TO ACQUIRE GMA-7!

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) may no longer acquire a controlling stake in media firm GMA Network Inc. as talks between the groups fall through.

PLDT announced in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Thursday, October 4, that its unit MediaQuest Holdings Inc.'s discussions for a possible acquisition deal with major shareholders of GMA-7 have ended because they failed to arrive at "mutually accepted terms."

"The parties have been unable to arrive at a mutually acceptable terms despite the continual discussions and efforts exerted in good faith," said the country's largest telecommunications company.

The talks on the much-awaited deal between the triumvirate that control GMA-7 -- the Duavit, Gozon and Jimenez families -- and PLDT chair Manuel V. Pangilinan started in December 2011.

Pangilinan earlier said they had arranged the funds for the purchase, which was targeted to be finalized before the end of 2012 and reported to cost anywhere between P50 billion and P60 billion. He said, too, that the controlling families would be paid in cash.

However, GMA-7 chair Felipe Gozon said in July that price and other issues were stalling the talks. - Rappler.com

MANILA, Philippines - Businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan won't be buying another TV network after all.

In a disclosure to the stock exchange, publicly listed GMA Network Inc. said discussions with MediaQuest Holdings Inc. for its possible acquisition of a controlling stake in the network have been terminated.

Mediaquest is an investee company of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) Retirement Fund.

"The parties have been unable to arrive at mutually acceptable terms despite continual discussions and efforts exerted in good faith," GMA said.

As of 10:08 a.m., GMA Network is the second biggest loser in the exchange, down by 9.31% at P8.180 per share.

Pangilinan has earlier offered to acquire GMA Network, the country's second largest broadcast firm, for an estimated P50 - P60 billion. However, neither PLDT nor GMA have confirmed these amounts officially.

PLDT, the country's biggest telecommunications company, already owns TV-5 broadcast firm.

GMA chief executive Felipe Gozon earlier declined to comment on specific details regarding Pangilinan's offer. He also didn't comment on discussions with other parties, except to say that talks at the moment only involve Pangilinan's group.

"We are not peddling GMA for sale. Somebody wanted to buy and we attended to it. There is no plan B, no plan C, no plan D," said Gozon, who controls GMA together with the Duavit and Jimenez families.

"We are ready, prepared and willing to continue running the station [in case the talks fail]," Gozon said.

This is the second time Pangilinan has attempted and failed to acquire GMA-7. In the early 2000s, Pangilinan tried to buy GMA-7 but discussions fell apart.
