The SCMP Group, the publisher of the South China Morning Post, has said its controlling shareholder has offered to buy out other shareholders at HK$2.75 per share each for as much as HK$2.36 billion to comply with takeover rules. Kerry Media intends to keep SCMP's listing status and does not plan to take it private, the group says. Last Thursday, Kerry Media bought a 3.2 per cent stake in SCMP at HK$2.39 per share, bringing its holding to 44.85 per cent and more than the 2 per cent level that will trigger a mandatory offer under takeover rules.
