DIC movement of investment only
BlackStone is also an investment company. What will happen is they will invest heavily in the parks over the next few years and then sell them all off as one big chain making a bucket load of cash in the process; hence the word investment.
Plus may I also remind you DIC still have a large say in what happens, 20% is a large amount and will certainly make their voice heard throughout the company.
Sell to who may i ask lol. Disney wont, Universal wouldnt as blackstone own 50% of them anyways. Cedar and Six flags are so heavy in debt they wouldnt buy. The fact of the matter is this is AS big as it gets for tussauds. Great owners now and they havent got a history of selling up.
Yeah DIC have a 20% stake but 80% isnt theres. They will take abit more of the back step now. 1028 million pounds in there pocket and still a 20% stake in the business i should think they are very happy with there deal. And would be very happy to let others make decsisions and they get a profit from it.
Also may i remind you that Investment isnt buying something adding cash and then selling on. Investment is adding cash into a business to see return without having to sell. The more money they make not selling the better for them. None of them will back out of this deal and sell up. its a money maker.
