History and profile
Controlinveste was founded in 2005 after the amalgamation of Lusomundo Media and Olivedesportos.
In 2013, Controlinveste was sold partly inter alia to Angolan investor António Mosquito Mbakassi (27.5%), representing a group of investors from Angola. The other parts were sold to Luís Montez (15%), Banco Comercial Portugues (15%) and Banco Espirito Santo (15%). Founder and owner Joaquim Oliveira keeps the remaining 27.5%. The deal included all of its print media and a radio station, which are Diário de Notícias, Jornal de Notícias, TSF Radio, O Jogo and Açoriano Oriental, focusing uniquely on its major asset, Sport TV.
On 17 December 2014, Controlinveste unveiled their new identity as Global Media Group and officially took the new name on 12 January 2015.
