Murdoch pulls Foxtel out of the financial fire

Murdoch pulls Foxtel out of the financial fire In just two weeks Foxtel needs to repay additional borrowings of $200 million. Whether Murdoch will come to the rescue again remains to be seen. Even if he does, the challenges don’t stop there. In two months Foxtel will need to stump up another debt repayment, then rinse and repeat in September. Foxtel’s rapid fire debt repayment schedule is gruelling over the next two years. And there is no point looking to Foxtel’s other shareholder, Telstra, which contributed nothing to help Foxtel with its April repayment. Thus the race is on to refinance nine separate debt facilities that become payable between now and 2022.
