外文标题：Chinese tycoon bids for Britain's House of Fraser: Report
LONDON: Chinese businessman Yuan Yafei has launched a surprise takeover bid for British department store chain House of Fraser worth £450 million ($748 million, 544 million), media reports said on Sunday.
Sanpower, a Nanjing-based conglomerate run and founded by Yafei, is in "advanced talks" to buy the 161-year-old British group, Sunday Times said without citing its source.
据媒体周日报道，中国商人袁亚非出其不意地对市值4.5亿英镑的英国连锁百货商店集团House of Fraser发起了一项收购。
The offer has been accepted by House of Fraser chairman Don McCarthy, whose family controls 20 per cent of the firm, the newspaper noted.
The proposals will now be put before House of Fraser's other shareholders, which include Icelandic banks that took stakes following the collapse of investment firm Baugur during the global financial crisis.
House of Fraser, which enjoys annual sales of about £1.2 billion per year, has 61 stores in Britain and Ireland.
报道指出，此次交易据信获得了House of Fraser董事长唐•麦卡锡(Don McCarthy)的同意。麦卡锡家族持有House of Fraser五分之一的股份。
提案现在摆到了House of Fraser其他股东的前面。House of Fraser的股东包括冰岛银行，后者在全球金融危机期间投资公司鲍格倒下后持股。
House of Fraser年销售额大约是12亿英镑，在英国和爱尔兰总共有61家商店。
