Brokers Attempt To Bid For Nine Entertainment

Leading stockbrokers have been attempting to bid for close to $280 million worth of Nine Entertainment Co. Holdings Limited (ASX:NEC) stock, held by Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE:OAK). Oaktree owns 14.3% of Nine Entertainment. Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG), UBS, Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS) and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C), were pitching for Oaktree's stake last week, according to fund manager sources. Oaktree is seen as the more likely of the two to sell in the short-term. It is understood one leading broker wanted to buy Oaktree's entire stake at the market price, without a commission, in the hope it could on-sell the stock at a slightly higher price and most likely charge a fee on that transaction. Brokers fight hard for the right to conduct large block trades, which can be beneficial for their reputations. Potential buyers of Nine stock would include existing fund manager shareholders like Perpetual Limited (ASX:PPT), AMP Limited (ASX:AMP) and Challenger Limited (ASX:CGF), as well as investors who may have been waiting for the hedge funds to sell out before making an investment. Sources said there had also been some interest from Asian fund managers.
