鱿鱼面馆:重磅 | 由西往东EMW部分股权被日本公司收购

2019年7月3日 下午3:46

最新消息,日本公共私募公司Cool Japan Fund Inc.宣布投资中国领先精品葡萄酒进口商由「西往东美酒公司」(East Meets West Fines Wines,简称,EMW)。

根据Cool Japan Fund Inc.(以下简称CJF)6月18日发布在其官网的新闻稿显示,该公司已经购买了EMW的“部分股权”。本次交易的具体金额和所购买的股份数量都并没有对外透露。笔者查看了EMW的官方网站,也并没有发现任何关于本次交易的新闻披露。

创建于2003年,EMW现拥有来自全球15个国家的80个品牌,经销网络覆盖中国大陆150多个城市以及香港和澳门。去年,EMW刚刚庆祝过其15周年纪念日,并被知名葡萄酒比赛WINE100评为中国最佳进口商。公司现由联合创始人Edouard Duval担任CEO,另一位联合创始人Gregory Bielot兼任管理合伙人及香港&华南业务的总经理。

“对于我们来说,关键点是CJF对我们的商业模式和管理团队的信任。EMW的市场认知、强大的分销网络以及CJF的融资、数字营销、生活方式和清酒烈酒方面的专业结合,为我们提供了新的机会,创造了协同效应。这种合作关系能使我们在市场上成为一个更强大的参与者,并为我们的员工、客户和供应商合作伙伴创造了令人兴奋的机会。”EMW首席执政官Edouard Duval在CJF发布的新闻稿中表示。

“我们对EMW的投资感到非常兴奋。这对CJF来说具有重要的战略意义。EMW在世界上增长最快的葡萄酒市场已经成功运营了15年多。他们凭借一个非常敏锐、健康的商业模式和强大的团队,在精品葡萄酒领域树立了绝对的领先地位。CJF看到了一个强强联合的好机会,可以利用其在中国优异的营销平台来发展高端日本清酒,同时进一步稳固EMW的葡萄酒和烈酒业务。” CJF公司的COO 和CIO Yuji Kato先生说到。

根据香港记者Natalie Wang女士在其网站Vino-joy.com上的报道:EMW可能被出售的新闻早在去年就已经在圈内流传。去年会计师事务所安永(Ernest & Young)就发布了一个项目引资的报告,暗示有个在大中华地区来头不小的葡萄酒进口商在寻求买家。但在当时被问及是否有出售这一打算,公司的联合创办人Gregory Bielot在香港很肯定的对Natalie Wang表示没有出售的意愿。

CIJ成立于2013年11月,是一家以支持和促进海外优秀日本产品和服务的公共私募基金。旨在将“Cool Japan”商业化,通过提供风险资本提升海外需求。适用于各种领域的企业,包括媒体和内容、食品和服务、时尚和生活方式。

尽管目前收购股份数量不详,但EMW也成为了近年来继ASC精品酒业之后,第二家被日本买家(部分)收购的中国领先精品葡萄酒进口商。ASC在2009年被日本三得利集团收购。

以下为CJF对外发布的英文新闻稿,以飨读者。
