Dear Kevin (Kamen & Co. Group Services),
Although you represented the sellers in this deal, I want to thank you, Kevin Kamen, for all that you did in brokering the sale of The Wave newspaper of the Rockaways in Queens, N.Y., to my family and me. Your leadership, negotiating skill-set and knowledge of the business, market and industry served as a most valuable tool throughout the entire process. When negotiations hit a bit of a snag you were able to masterfully get the two sides together to compromise. As the buyer of this wonderful legacy newspaper, The Wave of Rockaways, I want to personally thank you for everything you did to make the sale happen. You were always professional, reasonable and did a great job!

Still, the Globe didn’t lose all of its value at once. In 2010, when entrepreneur Aaron Kushner came calling only to be turned away by Times Co. management, a sale would likely have fetched $120 million in the view of media appraiser Kevin Kamen. By February of this year, he’d adjusted his estimate down to $63 million, just $7 million off the actual price Henry paid. (Kamen was similarly on target in guessing how much Tribune Co. would sell Newsday for; Cablevision CVC +5.2% paid $650 million for it in 2008.) Jeff Bercovici, Forbes
Kevin Kamen, a media appraiser at Kamen & Co. Group Services in Uniondale, NY correctly predicted as far back as 2010 that a buyer would be willing to pay $42 million to $51 million for The Journal . . .”They paid about $4 million to $5 million more than they should have,” Kamen told WPRI.com . . . Kamen suggested GateHouse was motivated to pay a premium in part to ensure a competing newspaper chain didn’t get The (Providence) Journal instead. Ted Nessi, Reporter, WPRI 12 / WPRI.com
As Thanksgiving approaches we are starting to see a great deal of large media conglomerates sell off publishing properties from their huge portfolios. Read More
