from the Edmonton Journal,
Drugstore billionaire Daryl Katz, the reclusive owner of the 1,800-store Katz Group pharmacy empire, has launched a surprise $145-million bid to acquire the Edmonton Oilers.
The all-cash offer by Katz, 45, an Edmonton native and University of Alberta law school grad whom Forbes magazine now ranks among the world’s richest men, was made to the 37-member Edmonton Oilers ownership group earlier this week.
Under terms of the offer, disclosed to The Journal late Friday by a source familiar with information shared at the meeting, the Oilers would remain in Edmonton.
