Business - Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox pledges to extend buybacks


Rupert Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox said on Friday it would renew a share buyback program using the proceeds from its partial exit from European pay-TV, regardless of any acquisitions the media group undertakes. The company made the pledge in a statement announcing the sale of Fox`s Italian and German pay-TV units to BSkyB for $9 billion in cash and assets. `For fiscal 2015 we will continue our share buyback program and will communicate the details of a renewed share buyback authorization upon the announcement of fiscal 2014 earnings results on Wednesday, August 6, 2014.` In August 2013, Fox`s board authorized a $4 billion share buyback over the next 12 months. Murdoch, chairman and CEO, added: `Our renewed authorization for our share buyback program will be executed regardless of any potential acquisition or investment activity by the Company.` Fox recently made an unsolicited $80 billion bid for media conglomerate Time Warner, which was rejected by its management as too low.

Business - BSkyB to pay $9 billion to create Sky Europe


By Kate Holton and Leila Abboud LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Britain`s BSkyB has agreed to pay $9 billion to buy Rupert Murdoch`s pay-TV companies in Germany and Italy, taking its hunt for growth into Europe by creating a media powerhouse with 20 million customers. BSkyB, in which Murdoch`s 21st Century Fox is also the largest shareholder, will pay for the deal using cash, debt, its stake in a TV channel and a placing of shares that represents around 10 percent of its issued share capital. BSkyB had flagged a possible deal for Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia in May. The price announced on Friday was slightly lower than expected by some analysts and the cost and revenue benefits laid out by BSkyB were greater than anticipated.

Business - GM recalls far from calamity for some dealers who find new customers, business


By Nick Carey and Bernie Woodall FOX LAKE Ill. (Reuters) - The news about deadly crashes linked to a faulty ignition switch, followed by wave upon wave of recalls, did not bode well for General Motors dealers earlier this year. It conjured visions of worried, frustrated drivers pouring onto lots like Raymond Chevrolet, outside of Chicago. Although the script is not what the dealership would have written, GM is delivering sales and service prospects to her door. GM as a whole posted a 2.5 percent increase in sales in the first half of the year, just a step behind the industry average of 4.3 percent.

Business - A Fox-Time Warner deal would give Murdoch new heft in China


Rupert Murdoch`s plan to buy Time Warner would help the Twenty-First Century Fox chairman make larger inroads in China, a fast-growing market that media moguls are finding hard to crack. Time Warner`s board rejected Murdoch`s $80 billion offer, but the Fox chairman is expected to continue the chase. It would also nearly double the revenues Fox generates from the emerging media markets in Latin America and Asia/Pacific. `He sees 3 billion new consumers coming into the market and a rising middle class in China and India, and mobile devices and strong demand for content,` said Mario Gabelli, the CEO of GAMCO Investors, in an interview with Reuters Insider, `He`s going to be able to create Netflixes of his own.` Gabelli owns shares of both Fox and Time Warner.
