Am I reading it right? Bankruptcy?
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?
first madhouse, now AIC
why do I even watch anime anymore?
But madhouse is doing fine anon.
Madhouse is a withered husk of its former self.
Nothing of value was lost
AIC isn't dead, it just changed hands. Learn to read.
>B...but anime industry is better than 90s
>no budget to finish Satoshi Kon last work
MAPPA is handling that now.
Why would AIC bankrupt anyways? Their recent shows have been pretty profitable. Date a Live, Persona 4...etc.
And mappa has no money.
But I don't care since we're getting teekyuu S4.
Because people can't read.
They're not bankrupt, there's just a change in ownership.
They're not bankrupt. They just changed hands and was sold for $77.
If I only had have $77 dollars right then...
Then you'd have fun paying the staff's salaries.
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?
That's what retained earnings are for, unless AIC has been running low on cash.
Probably just friends parting ways.
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.
