GMA NETWORK RELEASES OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING MVP'S P45 BILLION BUYOUT BID!

GMA NETWORK ISSUES STATEMENT. Nilinaw ni GMA Network President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. ang inilabas na artikulo ng Philippine Star sa pamamagitan ng official statement na ipinada  noong April 16.

 Pinabulaanan ni Mr. Duavit na dalawa sa tatlong major stockholders daw ng GMA-7 “are already amenable to selling their respective 33-percent stake.”


 Diin niya, “We are presently not in serious negotiations with the PLDT group as we have not yet received an offer price that is acceptable to us.

 "The Network is not for sale but that is not to say it may not be sold, depending on the offer price."

 Nilinaw rin ni Mr. Duavit na ang pagbenta ng GMA-7 sa PLDT group ay muntik nang mangyari noong 2001 dahil sa pagpirma ng  Memorandum Of Understanding sa pamamagitan ng mga may-ari ng network at ng nasabing grupo.

Nabanggit din ng Kapuso executive na may mga napagkasunduan na noon ang owners kaugnay ng pricing at sale ng majority stake, taliwas sa report na lumabas sa national daily.

Pero hindi raw natuloy ang transaksiyon dahil sa "issues encountered by the buyer, and not because of a disagreement on the indicated P14 billion price."

 Narito ang kabuuang statement ng GMA Network:

 GMA Network President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. clarified certain points raised in a news article by Mary Ann Ll. Reyes published in the Philippine Star last April 14 headlined "MVP offers up to P45 B for GMA Network.”

 Duavit said that it is not true that two out of the three major stockholders of GMA “are already amenable to selling their respective 33-percent stake."He added that the major and controlling shareholders have not yet received a price that is acceptable to them. “We are presently not in serious negotiations with the PLDT group as we have not yet received an offer price that is acceptable to us. The Network is not for sale but that is not to say it may not be sold, depending on the offer price,” Duavit reiterated.

 Duavit also clarified that the sale of GMA to the PLDT group nearly occurred in 2001 with the signing of a Memorandum Of Understanding between the owners and the said group. He mentioned that there were agreements already reached then among the owners on both pricing and a sale of a majority stake, contrary to the news article. The transaction, however, did not materialize due to issues encountered by the buyer, and not because of a disagreement on the indicated P14 billion price.
