Hands problem/solution

THE GUERNSEY BLUES AGAIN: The once swaggering Guy Hands has gone silent, notes Paul Davies in a commentary posted on the Financial Times site. For a man who once crowed about his EMI buyout as a symbol of Terra Firma’s appetite for beaten-up companies, Guy Hands has gone oddly quiet on the deal,” it begins. “EMI crops up ever more rarely in his perorations on private equity, while the 150-plus page annual report of Maltby Capital, its holding company, does not mention the man who overpaid for the music business with awful timing in 2007. It does contain plenty of grisly reading. There are predictions that Mr Hands and his investors will have to stump up another 100m or more next March alone to prevent it from being strangled by tightening covenants on its 3bn in loans from Citigroup”—though Davies believes it’s “unlikely Citi would alienate artist creditors by exerting its full rights in a default.” (8/18s)
