Sport Dyal Capital nears deal for minority stake in Sacramento Kings - WSJ
Philip Anschutz selling 27 percent stake in Lakers to Dodgers owners Mark Walter, Todd Boehly, per report
Anschutz also owns Staples CenterThe deal does potentially affect the Lakers in two key ways, though. The first relates to their arena. Anschutz owns Staples Center through his company, AEG. The Lakers recently signed an extension to their lease at Staples Center through 2041. The second relates to a possible future sale. Anschutz's shares in the team granted him the right of first refusal in the event that the Buss family's majority stake in the team was ever sold.
(Reuters) - Dyal Capital is nearing a deal to make an investment in the Sacramento Kings National Basketball Association team, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, citing people familiar with the matter.
The deal, which could be announced as soon as this week, would give the investment firm a nearly 5% stake in the team at a valuation of $1.5 billion, the newspaper said https://bloom.bg/3e55x56.
Dyal, a unit of the newly public Blue Owl Capital Inc, is best known for taking minority stakes in private-equity and credit firms. On July 6, Dyal said it would take a similar-sized stake in the Phoenix Suns.
Dyal is initially hoping to raise about $1 billion for the fund and plans to build a portfolio of minority investments in six different teams, with a goal of eventually doubling that, according to the report.
The parties were not immediately available for comment on Sunday.
