Folio: Penton For Sale 

Tony Silber and Matt Kinsman report that Penton is looking at a possible sale of the company, having retained Credit Suisse Securities.

Tony and Matt have a detailed look at how common shareholders will be "compensated" if a sale occurs. It looks predictably grim.


A special independent committee of the board was appointed to represent the common shareholders. None of the three committee members, interestingly, own any common shares of stock.

Great reporting from Folio:, as usual.

Here's the Penton press release.
