The cash injection is meant to help pay salaries and fund day-to-day operations. The sources also say that, ‘if nobody can be found at the last minute who is prepared to take Ron Lauder’s shares and the additional cash offered, then Channel 10’s board of directors will need to meet this week to decide how to move forward.”Those sources added, “It’s not logical that Lauder who holds a 30% of shares has kept the channel going for the past three years by himself.
In the agreement with the Ministry of Finance last year Lauder committed to inject NIS 80 million (about $22 illion) and today 11 months later he alone has already put in NIS 140 million (about $39 illion) – NIS 60 million (about $16.5 million) more than he promised.”
