Timberwolves owner Taylor signs agreement to buy Star Tribune; closing expected June 30

MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota Timberwolves owner and printing company billionaire Glen Taylor has signed a purchase agreement to buy the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1topSBo ) reports publisher Mike Klingensmith wrote in an internal company memo that Taylor and the newspaper's owners signed the agreement Wednesday.

Klingensmith said he expects the sale to close around June 30.

Taylor announced in April that he had made a cash offer to acquire the Star Tribune. The purchase would add Minnesota's largest media company to his group of businesses.

Wayzata Investment Partners and GE Capital together own about 75 per cent of Star Tribune shares, with the rest owned by former creditors and other investors. Taylor's offer is for 100 per cent of the shares.

The Star Tribune emerged from bankruptcy in 2009.
