Weinstein Company files for bankruptcy
    2018-03-22  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S former company has filed for bankruptcy, months after the Oscar-winning producer was accused of multiple sexual assaults.

The move by the Weinstein Company is intended to facilitate a buy-out offer from a private equity firm.

The film and TV studio also said it was releasing any victims of Weinstein’s alleged misconduct from non-disclosure deals stopping them from speaking out.

Weinstein, 66, insists sexual relations he had were consensual.

He was fired as chairman of the Weinstein Company last October when the allegations were first reported.

Once a powerhouse of the entertainment industry, the company will be known as the first high-profile firm that went into bankruptcy as a direct result of workplace sexual misconduct, the BBC’s Nick Bryant in New York reports.

On Monday, the firm filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy — a move permitting its reorganization.

The Weinstein Company – which was co-founded by Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob in 2005 — also announced a “stalking-horse” agreement with Lantern Capital Partners private equity firm.

The deal means that the private equity firm would buy assets if this is approved by a bankruptcy court. (SD-Agencies)
