ABSTRACT
The article throws light on certain facts related to Sony Corp. of America-led consortium's acquisition of media and entertainment company Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. (MGM). Some of the advisors in the deal were Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America Securities LLC, JPMorgan, Citigroup Inc., and Credit Suisse First Boston Corp. Rumors of an MGM sale had persisted for years, with heightened speculation around the plans of majority shareholder Kirk Kerkorian, who had sold MGM twice before, only to turn around and buy it back.
