10/08/2015


Relativity Television is to be acquired by the Investor Group which consists of three firms. The group still awaits court’s confirmation.



New York – 07 October 2015 – In a collective announcement made by an investor group on the 4th of October 2015, the “winning bidder for the Relativity Television business” under the “Chapter 11 estate” which deals with “Relativity Media LLC” conducted under “bankruptcy auction process” was revealed. The investor group comprises of:
“Anchorage Capital Group, L.L.C., Falcon Investment Advisors, LLC and Luxor Capital Group, LP”.
 
In the words of the investor group:
“We are very pleased about the outcome of the auction and excited about beginning the process of further strengthening Relativity Television. As one of the largest suppliers of high quality television programming in the United States, we believe there are attractive opportunities to drive innovation, creativity and growth to enable the business to realize its full potential. Upon completion of the sale, Relativity Television will be well-capitalized with a strong and creative senior leadership team, incredible human resources and valuable partner relationships, and we are confident that the business will be extremely well-positioned to achieve sustainable, long term success.”
 
The bankruptcy court is to receive the presentation of Relativity Television business’ sale which will be bought over by “the Investor Group”. The said hearing is expected to be in this month itself.
