Sandton Capital submits top bid for Free Lance-Star assets

A federal bankruptcy judge accepted a $30.2 million bid by a New York-based investment firm for the assets belonging to The Free Lance-Star Publishing Co.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin R. Huennekens on May 22 approved the bid from DSP Acquisitions, an affiliate of Sandton Capital Partners, despite details of the asset purchase agreements still needing to be finalized. The bid was for the publishing company’s newspaper, radio stations, radio towers and Print Innovators, the Free Lance-Star’s state-of-the-art printing facility.
