Mediaset and private equity group in Endemol talks
October 31, 2011

Mediaset and private equity fund Clessidra are discussing injecting 400-500 million of cash into debt-ridden producer and distributor Endemol, according to an Italian press report.

According to the report, Italian broadcaster Mediaset, an Endemol shareholder, and Clessidra are eyeing relaunching a recapitalised Endemol as a way of averting existing creditors from converting debt into equity in the company.
