Failed bidders for the Ten Network have until 13 October to challenge the transfer of its shares to US media giant CBS Corporation. A KPMG report to be released on 9 October may determine whether there will be a legal challenge to the CBS deal. The report concludes that Ten has negative net worth, but Lachlan Murdoch and Bruce Gordon are believed to have commissioned their own independent expert’s report which includes a positive valuation of Ten’s shares.
