A decade after their previous merger attempt failed, Informa in January agreed to buy UBM for 1.083 Informa shares and 163 pence cash per UBM share, gaining more exposure to events that allow firms to showcase their products and meet potential suppliers and business customers face to face. Informa will look to buy up smaller events and exhibitions to fold into its biggest sector shows and take their brands into newer geographies, Informa Chief Executive Stephen Carter said. Informa and UBM are also helped by their events being more focused on business-to-business customers.
Britain's Informa (INF.L) will achieve cost savings of at least 60 million pounds a year from its takeover of rival UBM (UBM.L), it said on Tuesday. The 5.6 billion pound deal, which was announced last month, will create a global leader in business events and conferences, almost a decade after UBM tried to buy Informa. About 60 percent of the combined group's 2.6 billion pounds in revenue will come from events ranging from the Game Developers Conference to the Monaco Yacht Show.
China is the world's largest F&B market with a population of more than 1.3 billion people. The combined events will create a one-stop purchasing platform for the Chinese food and beverage industry, the only event of this kind and scale in China.

Weak trading updates in Britain and dealmaking activity drove some big share price moves in Europe on Wednesday as the broader market weakened after a strong start to the year. Luxury fashion brand Burberry (BRBY.L) and educational publishing company Pearson (PSON.L) were among the top fallers after disappointing trading updates. Britain's FTSE (.FTSE) fell by 0.4 percent.
Britain's Informa (INF.L) struck a deal to buy conference organiser UBM (UBM.L) for 3.8 billion pounds in cash and stock on Wednesday, forming a world-leading business events and exhibitions group worth 8 billion pounds. The deal, which comes almost a decade after UBM tried to buy Informa, will give it greater scale and specialisation in events, the fastest growing part of its business, Informa said. Informa owns the Lloyds List shipping newspaper and runs around 200 exhibitions a year, including Arab Health and Agrishow, while UBM counts Black Hat computer security events and Game Developers Conference among its 300-strong portfolio.
Publisher and conference organizer Informa Plc is in discussions to buy rival UBM Plc, reviving a tie-up abandoned a decade ago that would unite two event-management heavyweights.

Uber said it has capped the number of hours its British drivers can work before they have to take a break in response to criticism over excessive working hours. A proposed takeover of English Premier League club Newcastle United seemed to have collapsed on Tuesday when associates of Mike Ashley, the football club's billionaire owner, claimed that long-simmering talks with financier Amanda Staveley had proved "a complete waste of time". Staveley's PCP Capital vehicle made an offer of 250 million pounds ($345.03 million) for Newcastle in November.
The two companies said in a joint statement on Tuesday that they were in discussions about a share-and-cash offer, while they could announce a possible price as soon as Wednesday, two people close to the situation said. The most recent talks started last year after Informa, which has a valuation of 6.1 billion pounds, approached its smaller rival UBM about a possible deal, one of the sources added. The companies were forced to put out a statement disclosing their talks on Tuesday following movements in UBM's share price.
