Spyglass Entitled to $4 Million Breakup Fee If MGM Studio Deal Is Breached
Spyglass Entertainment Group Inc., whose executives Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum will run Metro- Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. after its bankruptcy, is entitled to a $4 million break-up fee plus expenses of as much as $500,000 if it suffers any loss or damage from a breach of its agreement with the studio, according to a court filing.
The break-up fee won’t be triggered by last-minute changes to MGM’s deal with Spyglass, which were “consensual,” said two people with knowledge of the arrangement, who declined to be named.
