ABSTRACT
This article presents developments related to investment banking in media and entertainment sector in the U.S. Roughly a dozen bidders submitted offers for media company Hollinger International Inc.'s assets, including "The Daily Telegraph" newspaper and its sister publications. The bidding follows an unsuccessful effort by Great Britain's Barclay Brothers to acquire a controlling stake in the company from Conrad Black. Hollinger Inc., the Canadian holding company still controlled by Black, rejected a loan offer from its parent, raising speculation that Black will be unable to meet the March 30 deadline for a $7.4 million interest payment due on its senior secured debt.
