Comments on: When is an EMI bid not really a bid? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/10/06/when-is-an-emi-bid-not-really-a-bid/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Anonymous http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/10/06/when-is-an-emi-bid-not-really-a-bid/#comment-390757 Mon, 31 Oct 2011 20:19:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=30080#comment-390757 it’s a bluff by Warner. Universal’s chairman Bronfman is a controler. He first rescued Warner in 2004 from Time, so it goes by. The russian guy is also from drink industries, so they both do a buy ‘n sell strategy to build a super-major, straight ahead of all others.

However knowing the history and work ethic and experience of Jim Caparro I think he is an excellent choice as the next owner of EMI, it’s brand and legacy. He has shown that he knows what he is doing and with his innovative mind and experience I can only expect excellence and finally recoupment from any product produced within the confines of the new and improved EMI brand due to his direction.

As for Yamani Global Equities… I as a journalist am researching more about this company. I like their website and their business model. It seems to follow the directive that the American government is realizing and that is small business and new business is what is going to take us out of our recession. Therefore I think they too are a great candidate because they are new and with that probably comes new business models and innovation that is greatly needed within the music and entertainment industry.

Now I’m a little confused with one of your comments. I thought the CEO of Alliance Walburg was Wayne Little. Who is Steve Canady and why is he in your article but not listed in the press release?

Oh and as for the question why people put out press releases there have been tons on the sale of this music industry iconic brand… i guess it’s called scoop. Lastly as for an NDA did you see the new article released today that Warner might pull their bid.. didn;t they sign the same NDA? check out the aritcle: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-10 -08/warner-music-owner-blavatnik-said-to -consider-ending-emi-offer.html

Well like you I am intrigued by ALL of this. Look forward to your reply.
May the best bidder win!
