Who’s getting money?
VICE Media is in the final days of a deal with A&E that will value the company at $2.2 billion, according to The New York Times. Last year, around this time, it closed a deal with Fox that valued it at $1.4 billion. $2.2 billion is a long way of from the $28 billion valuation the company’s CEO Shane Smith speculated about in March, but it’s still a huge number. That said, if cool culture is by nature small, how long can VICE Media stay cool?
Mediant Communications, a platform for companies to communicate with shareholders and meet securities requirements, raised $3.25 million on an offered $5 million late-stage equity-only round, according to an SEC filing.
