Seven Group Holdings has sold 39 million shares in Prime Media Group to Birketu, the private investment vehicle of WIN Corporation owner Bruce Gordon. The $A15.6m transaction has assured Gordon of a key role in any media industry consolidation, given that he now has stakes of almost 15 per cent in Nine Entertainment Company and Prime, which is the regional affiliate of the Seven Network. Gordon had also been Ten Network’s largest shareholder prior to its collapse.
