Zap Group

German media giant Axel Springer has offered to buy website directory company Zap Group (formerly Dapei Zahav – Golden Pages) for NIS 140 million (about $40 million). The bid comes one month after buying classified ads website Yad2 for NIS 800 million (about $231 million) from Bezeq Israeli Telecommunication Co. Ltd. (TASE: BEZQ).

The sum being offered by Axel Springer is 75% above the purchase offer made last month by FIMI Opportunity Funds (FIMI) and Sky Fund.

A shareholders meeting has been called to discuss the two offers. Zap Group has debts totaling NIS 80 million (about $23 million)
