LEGO Buys Back LEGOLAND, Kind Of

An interesting development occoured over the weekend with news that LEGO was buying back LEGOLAND.

What’s going on? Well a consortium on investment companies is buying Merlin Entertainments PLC – the company that currently owns and operates LEGOLAND and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre attractions around the world.

That may not sound like it involves LEGO but one part of the “consortium” is KIRKBI Invest A/S, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of KIRKBI A/S, the ultimate owner of the LEGO brand.

legoland-kirkbi

It’s all very confusing if you aren’t a corporate lawyer and what impact this will have on the parks is still a lot of guesswork. I think it’s a fair assumption to make that LEGO wouldn’t be getting involved in a deal for LEGOLAND if they weren’t interested in having a say over the direction of the parks.

The other parties in the consortium don’t seem like they’d have a lot of interest in the day to day stuff of LEGOLAND. They comprise of Blackstone and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.

Obviously the Merlin Entertainment PLC company owns more than just the LEGOLAND attractions. Merlin operates over 130 attractions, 19 hotels and seven holiday villages in 25 countries and across four continents. LEGO now kind of owns the Sydney Aquarium for example.

I think this is one that we will all need to watch closely.
