Private Equity and the Media

The credit crunch is the issue dominating the news these days – but what is its impact on the UK’s creative economy?

You have a chance to find out on 7 October 2008 when Westminster Media Forum most timely organises a seminar on equity buyouts and their impact on creative output, editorial risk-taking and audiences.

The seminar will bring together policy makers from Parliament, Government and regulation, with stakeholders from the financial and media sectors, in order to assess whether private equity is good for the UK’s creative economy.

The seminar will look inter alia at the benefits and challenges of private equity backing for a media organisation and explore the issues specific to financing the media.

Key note addresses will be given by Peter Bazalgette, Media Investor and Consultant; and Jon Moulton, Managing Partner, Alchemy Partners. Other speakers are confirmed from 7digital, August Equity, BDO Stoy Hayward, Pact, Private Equity News, Clifford Chance, and Human Capital.

More information on the seminar can be found here and the booking form here.
