蚂蚁金服放弃收购全球第二大汇款商MoneyGram

2017年1月,蚂蚁金服与全球第二大汇款服务商MoneyGram就合并事宜开始进行接洽。MoneyGram在全球拥有6.5亿用户,是仅次于西联汇款的全球第二大跨境汇款服务商。本次合并计划也是蚂蚁金服海外拓展的重要一步。

蚂蚁金服最初报价8.8亿美元。2017年4月因Euronet参与竞争,蚂蚁金服将收购价提升至12亿美元。

本次合并协议随后提交美国外国投资委员会(CFIUS)审查,该机构专门负责对进入美国市场的外国投资者进行审核。

昨日,蚂蚁金服与MoneyGram集团共同宣布,由于没有获得CFIUS批准,双方合并计划告吹。蚂蚁金服将向MoneyGram支付3000万美元费用终止本次合作。

MoneyGram is calling off its merger with a Chinese financial services giant after failing to get approval from the U.S. government.

The deal between Ant Financial, an affiliate of Jack Ma's conglomerate Alibaba (BABA), and the American money transfer service was first announced in January 2017. Ant Financial originally agreed to pay $880 million, but upped its offer to $1.2 billion in April after a U.S. company made an unsolicited bid on MoneyGram.

The agreement had been under review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, the inter-agency body that vets deals that could give a foreign investor control of a U.S. business.

"Despite our best efforts to work cooperatively with the U.S. government, it has now become clear that CFIUS will not approve this merger," Holmes said.

The Treasury Department, which chairs CFIUS, said the agency is "prohibited by statute from publicly disclosing information filed with CFIUS."

The acquisition would have been Ant Financial's first major move to expand its footprint overseas. MoneyGram, which has over 650 million users worldwide, competes with Western Union for cross-border money transfers to countries like Mexico.

Ant Financial paid MoneyGram a $30 million fee to terminate the deal.
