RIP AIC
>>
Am I reading it right? Bankruptcy?
>>
>>100629525
That's what it looks like to me, the sponsor company withdrew so AIC is going to dissolve.

I don't see AIC going bankrupt here, it seems they just transferred it to a new owner to get rid of a cell phone game company.
>>
It actually says AIC is NOT going bankrupt, but in the subject, somebody in the industry said that another company is being broken-up and that if that leaked it would cause a much bigger ruckus than AIC.
>>
>Aplix purchased AIC as a wholly-owned subsidiary for 700 million yen (at the time about US$8.5 million) in 2011.
>Aplix sold the 8,000 shares for 8,000 yen (about US$77) total.

So Aplix sold the whole AIC for $77 when they bought it for $8.5 million? Isn't that a total loss?

How terrible.
>>
>>100634834
But madhouse is doing fine anon.
>>
>>100635081
Madhouse is a withered husk of its former self.
>>
>AIC

Nothing of value was lost
>>
AIC isn't dead, it just changed hands. Learn to read.
>>
>B...but anime industry is better than 90s
>>
>>100635081
>no budget to finish Satoshi Kon last work
>>
>>100635189
MAPPA is handling that now.
>>
Why would AIC bankrupt anyways? Their recent shows have been pretty profitable. Date a Live, Persona 4...etc.
>>
>>100635207
And mappa has no money.
But I don't care since we're getting teekyuu S4.
>>
>>100635251
Because people can't read.
>>
>>100635251
They're not bankrupt, there's just a change in ownership.
>>
>>100635251
They're not bankrupt. They just changed hands and was sold for $77.

If I only had have $77 dollars right then...
>>
>>100635341

Then you'd have fun paying the staff's salaries.
>>
>>100635303

This. Aplix probably just wanted to wash their hands of them.

AIC are one of my favorite studios though, a little and miss recently but generally pretty good.

Now where the fuck is JUSTEEEN ??
>>
The question is why was the stock sold for so little money, illegal backroom deals?
>>
>>100635447
That's what retained earnings are for, unless AIC has been running low on cash.
>>
>>100635516

Probably just friends parting ways.
>>
>>100635516

Stock is not required to be sold on the open market. The stock market is merely an avenue that allows you to do so. You could give it away if you wanted to.
