Introduction

Live music promoter SFX Entertainment is facing the real prospect of being broken up and sold after chairman and CEO Robert F.X. Sillerman failed in his move to take the company private.

Highlights

  • Sillerman has embarked on a second attempt to take back the company that went public at the end of 2013 but, with a new deadline of the beginning of October – a month that will also see Sillerman face up to legal claims from ex-business acquaintances that they were partly behind the founding of SFX – the future of the company looks bleak.
  • Revenue keeps rising but so do losses and the ongoing uncertainly surrounding the future of company has driven up talk of bankruptcy and driven down the share price.
