At that time, Music as the Department invested 2.18 billion yuan from the founder of Cool Group Guo Deying hands 18% stake in the company, became the second largest shareholder. One year later, as the largest TV station in Hong Kong, LeTV Media added another 11% of its stake to Coolpad for a consideration of HK $ 1.047 billion (at a prevailing exchange rate of about 870 million U.S. dollars). As a result, LeTV ranked first with a total value of 3.0 billion yuan and a 28.78% stake. shareholder.

This means that if the original price of the owner and the latest sale price compared to the music as part of this part of the equity transfer will be as high as 1.2 billion loss.

In fact, since the music crisis in November 2016, the music department, it has been very concerned about how it will deal with the shares of Coolpai Group. Since then, as Music Credit Debt crisis intensified, and Jiayue Ting, Liu Jiangfeng (former CEO of Coolpad Group) and others resigned as Kuwait Group, and replaced by Liu Hong (Chairman of Kuwait Group) and Jiang Chao (CEO of Kuwait Group) , Followed by the outside world that its cash out of Cool Group will become a high probability event.

However, given the conditions in the future and the suitability of some people and the reasonable price, Do not rule out the possibility of continued transfer.

Difficult to fill debt loopholes

Although the LeTV non-listing system official said he did not respond to the sale of the shares of Coolpai Group and did not realize the use of cash, the outside world believes that Jia Yueting and LeTV are the only way to solve the debt crisis, leaving only a way of selling assets.

However, The total amount of debt is still likely to reach as high as 10 billion yuan or even more.

In order to alleviate the debt pressure, since last year, including active and passive forms, Jiayue Ting and LeTV have successively transferred foreign shares including Easy-to-share ownership and its subsidiaries for debt repayments. It is also considered a continuation of this model today.

"This is basically not suspense, the assets of the non-listed system can dispose of all the disposal, the key is to have a good price," said LeTV as mentioned above, said, "Like the previous project Shimao surely want to The sale of funds back and forth, but has always been with the counterparty in the price gap.

However, in case the old account is not yet cleared and the new account starts up again, it is unrealistic that the troubles of Jia Yunting and LeTV will be solved quickly. January 4, 21st Century Business Herald reporter learned from the easy to the inside, against the rumors of the 1.3 billion financing has been appropriated Music as the case, easy to now has begun to seek legal channels to safeguard their own interests.
