Shapiro sets bid package for Goldwyn

IndieProd president Allen Shapiro has put together the backing for an offer for troubled indie Samuel Goldwyn Co. At least two other offers are possible in coming days.

The bids are thought to be in the range of $4-$5 a share – which puts a value on Goldwyn, including its $72 million debt, of about $110 million. The source of Shapiro’s backing isn’t known, but it is understood that IndieProd is not involved with the deal,

Goldwyn said in its latest SEC filing that it won’t be able to make a $2.5 million repayment due on its bank line Dec. 29 without “alternative financing” being available.
