Hef Offers To Take Playboy Private

| Filed under: PlayboyBusiness Blitz


In order make Playboy a private company, Hugh Hefner has backing from a private equity firm Rizvi Traverse Management LLC to buy the shares of his empire that he does not already own.

But he's got some competition!

CEO of FriendFinder, Mark Bell, is planning on making a formal bid.

Although Hef does not plan on selling his shares or the company. He wrote a letter to Playboy's board of directors detailing his disdain for a merger with any other brand.

Too bad Mr. Hefner only owns 4 million of the companys' 33.6 million shares of stock. It isn't his decision anyway.

    Perez or Ghostwriter…you really are clueless when it comes to business.

    He owns 4million shares of stock.. Anyone who owns shares owns part of the company. If you own shares you get to vote on decisions within the company. So yes, he still can make decisions, and considering he owns 4million shares as 1 person compared to the 33.6 million shares floating around many people. He probably can make certain decisions. So shut the fuck up and continue making horrible videos using windows movie maker.
