MGM watch: another extension granted

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc.’s holding pattern continues. The studio, hobbled by debt, got a fifth extension on debt payments. Here’s the start of a story by Michael White:

May 13 (Bloomberg) — Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., the film studio that put itself up for sale after falling behind on its debt, said lenders agreed to extend forbearance on interest payments.

Creditors will waive payments until July 14, the Los Angeles-based studio said today in an e-mailed statement. The company has $3.7 billion in debt.
