Online jobs advertiser SEEK will pay $A157 million to buy News Corp’s 13.75 per cent stake in its Asian business. SEEK CEO Andrew Bassat says News Corp had been a "great partner", and that moving to 100 per cent ownership of SEEK Asia "just made sense". SEEK will use existing debt facilities to fund the transaction, which is due to be completed by 16 March. SEEK had revenue of $A620.3 million for the first half 2017-18, of which its international businesses contributed $A340.1 million.
