Friends, There was an interesting story on page B9 in today's Wall Street Journal about AOL near a deal to sell Warner's CD manufacturing (WEA) to two possible parties: (1) A group of investors led by Jim Caparro, CEO of WEA, and private equity investors for $1 billion-AOL needs the money to pay down debt. (2) Cinram International. It also stated that AOL has been negotiating the sale/merger of Warner to Bertelsmann's BMG unit. It stated that "the talks were progressing, a person familiar with the situation said, although a deal is thought to be several weeks away". There is speculation that this would raise another $1 billion for AOL, the parent. I post this because it could have an impact on DVDA's future, potentially positive if it combines with the additional market share of BMG. BMG must remain committed to the hirez format, however, and I believe it has been struggling financially as well. It will be interesting to see what happens - hopefully this move will strengthen high resolution formats in one way or another. Maybe we will see additional BMG titles in either SACD or DVDA. What's your take?
