Chile / Buy and turn around

 

Spain's Recoletos Grupo de Comunicación raised its stake in Ediciones Financieras from 15% to 37.4%. Ediciones Financieras publishes Diario Financiero, Chile's top selling business newspaper. The investment was realized through Ediciones Chiloé, a 50-50 joint venture between Recoletos and its Chilean partner Grupo Claro. Ediciones Chiloé controls Ediciones Financieras, owning 74.7%. Recoletos has been present in Chile since 1996 when it bought 15% of Ediciones Financieras, the maximum allowed at that time for foreign companies.

by 100% to an average daily circulation of 34,547. More than 60% of the circulation is sold through subscriptions.
