FRANKFURT (Reuters) – ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE said it would look for possible external investors to back its content production and digital commerce businesses, potentially via a separate stock market listing. “The company will enter discussions with interested third parties regarding a potential co-investment in or business combinations with its content production and digital commerce businesses through their respective holding entities,” the broadcaster said in a statement late on Monday. “The review also includes the possibility for potential future public listings.” It said it was looking into merging its TV advertising business in German-language markets with its Digital Entertainment division, whose activities include video-on-demand and online advertising, to cut costs. More details would be disclosed on Nov. 9, it added. Also on Monday, it warned that TV advertising revenues in German-language markets would decline in the third quarter but it upheld its full-year profit guidance thanks to a better performance in other divisions.
