Minnesota Timberwolves owner and printing company billionaire Glen Taylor completed his purchase of the StarTribune yesterday, the newspaper said.
Terms were not disclosed, but Taylor has put the purchase price at around $100 million, the StarTribune reported.
"As I've said before, the StarTribune is not only a good business, it's an important institution for all Minnesotans," Taylor said in a statement. "Our state and the region benefit from the presence here of a strong journalistic enterprise."
Glen Taylor’s effort to purchase the StarTribune moved forward yesterday with the signing of a purchase agreement between the Minnesota billionaire and the media company.
StarTribune Publisher Mike Klingensmith called the agreement an “important milestone” and said he expects the sale to close around June 30. “Work remains to be done, but we are increasingly confident of closing this transaction,” Klingensmith said.
Taylor has said he will pay around $100 million in the deal. He could not be reached for comment.
