Nine offloads StuffBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Monday, 25th May 2020 at 3:18pm
The Nine Network has sold its NZ media outfit Stuff Ltd to CEO Sinead Boucher (pictured) – for just NZ$1.
The sale, which is expected to be completed by the end of this week, includes a lease-back to Stuff for a printing plant Nine uses in Wellington and the sale of ISP Stuff Fibre. However, 25 percent of the Stuff Fibre proceeds will be remitted to Nine; the rest of the money will be temporarily used to keep Stuff afloat over the next three years, after which a corresponding amount will be processed to Nine.
Stuff became a Nine subsidiary after the conglomerate’s merger with its parent firm, the former Fairfax Media, in 2018.
“Today is an important moment for Stuff as a business. It is great to take control of our own future with the move to local ownership and the opportunity to build further on the trust of New Zealanders, who turn to us for local and national news and entertainment every day,” said Boucher.
