Best Buy Sells 50% European Stakes to Carphone Warehouse

Best Buy is a familiar high tech meeting point where buying and selling takes place on a mass level. It’s in its European ramification to Carphone Warehouse (CPW) as soon as possible. According to its financial news release, the sale which amounts to $775 million dollars will not go unnoticed in the financial world. As for the directors of both companies, they have approved of this exchange and called it a fair financial transaction.

Letters of Agreement have been duly signed and most bear the signatures of the directors themselves. June 2013 is the expected timing of the financial swap. The stamp of approval of the shareholders is a necessary hurdle too. Best Buy Europe will become defunct by 2014 though. Hubert Joly, the President and CEO of Best Buy said that “the timing and economics were right to enter into this agreement with CPW.”  He furthermore added that the interlocking agreement would clarify the situation, boost returns on invested assets and stabilize the balance sheet.

However, he warned that such an action was not to be expected from other segments of the business. The conditions varied in various niche markets, so what counted here didn’t necessarily do so there. Best Buy Europe was created in 2008. It opened up stores in eight countries on a worldwide level. The management at Best Buy is looking into the future market trends and trying to predict and prognosticate what lies ahead. The days that are yet to be are a hard nut to crack.

This act of fine-tuned finance will enable Best Buy to get its much-needed health back in order again. The lean thinking capacity of the company that caused this sale to its sidekick in joint ventures (Carphone Warehouse) is to be commended. Besides, the big silo of technology was searching for an escape clause and finally found it.  The huge sale will occur as planned and in accordance with schedule.
