Cablevision mulls over Dolan family buyout offer
Cablevision has already lined up two blue-chip Wall Street investment banks - Morgan Stanley and Lehman Brothers - to advise on a buyout offer from the Dolan family. In addition, Cablevision's board has formed a special committee to evaluate the offer. In June, the Dolan family offered to take Cablevision private in a $7.9 billion cash-and-stock deal that would lead to the company splitting off its TV networks and sports teams into a separate entity (Rainbow Media Holdings).
Whatever happens at Cablevision is worth watching, especially the continuing twists and turns in the family-son drama between Charles and James Dolan. Is it possible that the Dolan family will really live happily ever after?
