DCG considers selling news publication to CoinDesk

Faced with a liquidity crunch, Digital Currency Group (DCG) is considering selling popular news outlet CoinDesk.. The cost of the service reaches $200 million.

According to The Wall Street Journal, CoinDesk management is currently consulting with specialists from Lazard.. This company specializes in mergers, sales, restructuring and business strategy.

“Over the past months, we have received many incoming proposals. Many firms and investors are interested in full or partial buyout of CoinDesk. So I turned to Lazard. We hired experts from this company to evaluate various opportunities and raise capital for business development,” said Kevin Worth, CEO of the publication.

It is worth noting that the CoinDesk edition was purchased by DCG in 2016.. The amount of the transaction ranged from $500,000 to $600,000. Thus, for 6 years the cost of publication has increased by 400 times.
