Molson Coors sells interests to Gillett

Associated Press
8/10/2006 10:34:40 PM

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Molson Coors has sold part of its interest in the Montreal Canadiens hockey franchise to majority owner George Gillett for $36.1 million US, the Rocky Mountain News reported on its website Thursday.

Molson Coors retains 19.9 per cent of the common shares in the club but the sale of its preferred interest removes an obligation the beer company had to guarantee Gillett's loans taken out to buy the team in 2001.

Molson Coors disclosed the June 30 transaction in its quarterly report to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

NHL spokesman Frank Brown said the league's board of governors approved the transaction.

The Canadiens are one of hockey's most storied franchises, with 24 Stanley Cup championships dating to the 1915-16 season.

After losing money in the 1990s, Molson sold 80 per cent of the club and 100 per cent of the Bell Centre, then known as the Molson Centre, to Gillett in a deal valued at $184 million.

Gillett is the former owner of the Vail ski resort, who owns interests in skiing, real estate, sports and meat packing.
