Marwyn looks to buy media companies

Marwyn, the investment group that took over Peppa Pig rights owner Entertainment One in 2007, has launched a cash vehicle to buy media companies, according to news reports.

The Financial Times said the AIM-listed vehicle is led by Rebecca Miskin, former digital strategy director at magazine group Hearst Magazines UK, and Juan Lopez-Valcarcel, former chief digital officer for Pearson.

Miskin and Lopez-Valcarcel are reportedly looking to buy digital and print media companies based in the UK and the US which have a value of up to £1bn.
