SFX Entertainment, Inc. Nearing Bankruptcy
SFX Entertainment, the production company lead by Robert F.X. Sillerman, is on the verge of bankruptcy after a tumultuous quarter.
In the past three months the companies stock has plummeted 61.65% and in the last week alone it's dropped 45.64%. With the promise of a sale on the horizon, this does not bode well for the company.
SFX is currently in the midst of a couple lawsuits as well. Back in September, a group of investors filed a lawsuit citing that Sillerman gave them false and misleading information regarding the acquisition of the company with finances that Sillerman never had. SFX is also currently batting federal charges for possible violations of federal securities laws due to Sillerman attempting to privatize the company.
This past summer wasn't a bright spot for the company either with the unorganized fiasco at TomorrowWorld and One Tribe Festival along with labels not receiving royalties from Beatport, the future is not looking bright.
