TALKS ON-GOING ON FUTURE OF FOOTAGE.net
Issuing its interim results for the 12-months ending last October 31, the British Company that owns industry portal FOOTAGE.net says it is continuing discussions with "a number of interested parties" in an effort to effect the disposal of the portal business. London-based Catalyst Media Group has already disposed of its other two American subsidiaries and talks about the future of FOOTAGE.net have being on-going since last October. CMG, which made a major acquisition outside the footage sector last year, reports losses in the 12 months of £7.3m (approx $12.3m), including re-structuring costs.
