NetStar Communications, owner of Canada's TSN, "is considering turning itself into a publicly listed company, with an initial public offering of up to" C$100M, according to Gayle Macdonald of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. TSN Founder & NetStar CEO Gordon Craig: "At this point, we're looking at the whole issue quite seriously to see if it's the right time to do an IPO." Craig said the company would use proceeds of an IPO "to buy specialty-channel properties," but he would not elaborate on what assets his two-year-old company might be interested in (GLOBE & MAIL, 12/12).
