Bond Producer EON Says It Isn’t Part of Sahara’s MGM Studio Bid

Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- EON Productions, producer of the James Bond movies, said it isn’t involved in Sahara India Pariwar’s bid for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., the debt-laden Los Angeles film studio.

“EON Productions tonight confirmed they have never had any contact with Sahara India Pariwar and are in no way involved in the Sahara India Pariwar bid for MGM,” spokeswoman Stephanie Wenborn said in a statement.

London-based EON, co-owner of the Bond franchise with MGM, is involved in Sahara India’s bid, a person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg News earlier. EON is run by Barbara Broccoli and her stepbrother, Michael G. Wilson.

Sahara India, based in Lucknow, offered $2 billion for MGM’s more than $3.7 billion in debt, the Associated Press reported on Sept. 17.
