TEN Network Receives Non Binding Conditional Proposals

As Ten Network Holdings Limited (ASX:TEN) revealed to the market it had "received non binding, conditional proposals from a number of parties" to take over the network, shares were sold amid speculation FOXTEL Cable Television Pty Limited and Discovery Communications, Inc. (NasdaqGS:DISC.A) had lowered their joint bid. Ten did not reveal the detail of bids handed to advisers Citigroup, but there was market speculation the network headed by Chief Hamish McLennan received at least three offers. "Ten urges caution in dealing in its shares on the basis of media speculation about -potential transactions involving the company," it said in a statement to the ASX. The consortium of pay Foxtel and Discovery submitted a lower-than-expected offer of 23 cents a share, valuing Ten Network at AUD 605 million, AAP reported. The pair had originally made an offer of 26 cents a share, but wound it back after briefings by Ten about the state of the broadcaster, it was reported. Other potential buyers said to be in the mix include the private equity company that floated Dick Smith, Anchorage Capital Group, L.L.C. Another potential buyer is Saban Capital Group, Inc. An independent committee of the Board of Ten will now consider the proposals in conjunction with Citigroup. "If implemented (these -offers) could result in a change of control of Ten or a refinancing of its existing debt facilities," Ten said. "It should be noted that the proposals are confidential, non-binding and conditional in nature and may or may not -result in a transaction that is acceptable to the company." Ten said it would update the ASX again "when required to do so under its continuous disclosure obligations". TEN Network shares fell more than 6% amid reports potential buyers had reduced bids for TEN Network.
