National Amusements Opposes Viacom's Planned Sale Of Paramount Stake

National Amusements, Inc. opposed sale of stake in Paramount Pictures Corporation. National Amusements said on July 15, 2016, that it opposes the sale of a stake in Viacom, Inc. (NasdaqGS:VIAB)’s Paramount Pictures, saying that any transaction could hurt the chances of a transaction involving all of Viacom. National Amusements said in a statement that Paramount was one of Viacom’s most valuable assets and any short-term benefits of a stake sale would be outweighed by the negative impact on Viacom’s future strategic flexibility to best capitalize on this important asset. A Viacom spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment. “A sale of a stake of Paramount would chill the interest of parties that may be interested in a larger transaction involving all of Viacom," National Amusements said in the statement. "If the new board decides to pursue a sale of a minority stake in Paramount as part of a larger strategic plan for Viacom, we are confident that a buyer could then be identified and a sale consummated," National Amusements said.
