PW Daily reports that various Publishers Group West clients are sending back signed agreements to the distributor, though as of this writing, not all publishers have yet received offers. Perseus CEO David Steinberger said he had received “more than 10″ contracts since they began coming in yesterday. Late last week, Steinberger and PGW head Rich Freese met with a group of PGW clients in the San Francisco Bay Area. “The sessions went well. We did a lot of listening,” Steinberger said.
As the runup to the February 7 bankruptcy court hearing date for objections to Perseus’s offer continues, so too do the rumors and speculation. Yesterday PW Daily reported that AMS’s primary lender, Wells Fargo Foothill, “received at least two promising going concern offers for the AMS business,” though the bidders were not named. And both Edward Champion and Radio Free PGW offer items about dealings within Perseus’s distribution chambers.
