What would you do if you bought too much stuff and later on found out some of them just aren’t of interest to you anymore? Sell it. That’s the case with Shanda, the company that seemed to be on a selling spree now in the wake of the buying spree over past few years.

Shunwang Technology, the Hangzhou-based vendor of Internet Cafe management software announced yesterday to acquire Chengdu Jisheng Technology Co., Ltd., a company that develops and distributes management software for internet cafes from Shanda. Jisheng lost RMB 27.54 million last year.

Shanghai-based Shanda bought Jisheng in September 2003 to diversify its business lines.

We mentioned earlier that Shanda sold two gaming subsidiaries  CGA.com.cn and GameABC.com for RMB 3.5 billion to Zhebao Media, a media group in China eastern Zhejiang province.

As the gaming conglomerate speeded up its pace to approach its China’s Disney dream, we’ll be seeing more sells by Shanda in the future as one of the ways to consolidate and restructure its highly diversified businesses.
