Tribune Strategic Investments
Tribune has a long history of making strategic acquisitions and investments in emerging media and marketing businesses. Our objective is to acquire or invest in companies that can help us grow our existing businesses and expand into new areas. Many factors impact our investment decision, including:
- Financial return, either through our ownership stake, an ongoing business relationship, or both
- Access to content, technologies, capabilities or business models that enhance our existing businesses or enable expansion into new businesses
- Opportunity for Tribune to contribute to a company’s success through a combination of our assets, expertise, connections and insight
- Quality of the management team
We understand that each opportunity is unique and we have a high degree of flexibility in structuring our transactions to meet the needs of the business, its new and existing investors and its entrepreneurs. In some situations we will purchase minority interests, while in others we will look to acquire a majority or 100% stake. When making investments, we will consider any promising business at any point in its life cycle, from seed to later stage. In addition, we are equally comfortable acting as lead or co-investor with other strategic investors or venture capital funds.
