Macrovision's Take for TV Guide: A Single Dollar
Well, this would explain why they didn’t want to disclose the price.
In a filing with the SEC, Macrovision (MVSN) disclosed the price tag for the sale of TV Guide to OpenGate Capital, and it’s a stunner: a single dollar, along with the assumption of liabilities. (Like the need to fulfill current subscriptions.) Macrovision even agreed to provide the buyer with a loan of up to $9.5 million.
