Global Media Group (formerly Controlinveste) is a Portuguese media holding company founded by Portuguese sports mogul and FC Porto S.A.D.'s shareholder Joaquim Oliveira.[3]

History and profile[edit]

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 Português (15%) and Banco Espírito 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, O Jogo, Açoriano Oriental and TSF, focusing uniquely on its major asset, Sport TV.[4][5]

On 17 December 2014, Controlinveste unveiled their new identity as Global Media Group and officially took the new name on 12 January 2015.[6]
