Saban Brands May Bid For Apax Partners Asset

Saban Brands, the U.S.-based brand management company, could bid for Hit Entertainment, the Apax Partners-run entertainment rights manager that owns rights to kids’ shows including Thomas the Tank Engine, an article in Marketwatch said. Since reclaiming the rights to his Power Rangers phenomenon last year from Disney, Haim Saban, founder of Saban Brands, has looked to expand on his stable of rights.
