Cablevision rejected offer for Knicks, Rangers
NEW YORK — Cablevision Systems Corp. rejected a $700 million offer from an investment group last month to buy the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers professional sports teams, a Cablevision spokesman said Monday.
Cablevision, the country’s sixth-largest cable operator, confirmed the details of the offer made in a letter dated Oct. 18 by a group led by financier Russell D. Glass, a former executive at Icahn Associates, billionaire Carl Icahn’s investment firm.
News of the offer was reported online Monday night by The Wall Street Journal.
The investment group also offered to discuss an additional bid to buy the teams’ venue of Madison Square Garden from Cablevision but did not specify a price, according to Bethpage, N.Y.-based Cablevision.
Icahn was not involved in the bid, the newspaper reported, citing people familiar with the offer.
The company played down the significance of the bid.
“Cablevision has no plan to sell the Knicks and Rangers and this did not appear to be a credible offer,” Cablevision spokesman Charles Schuler said.
He declined further comment, including whether Cablevision was still talking with the Glass-led group.
