提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
EMI owns the rights to some of the world's best-known musicians, including the Beatles and the rock band Coldplay. The company was bought for $6.5 billion by a private equity group headed by one of London's most prominent financiers, Guy Hands, in 2007, shortly before the global financial crisis.

That valuation looked massively optimistic after the markets crashed and EMI's new owner was saddled with an unpayable legacy of debt. Citigroup, which bankrolled the deal, fought for repayment of loans.

The issue was the subject of a high-profile court case in London, which Guy Hands lost. He claimed Citigroup, his bankers, had duped him into paying too much for EMI by suggesting there was a rival bidder when there wasn't. EMI's business performance improved considerably under his ownership, but the debt burden was just too big.

It's unclear what will happen now Citigroup have taken control, but the move means a big chunk of EMI's debt has been erased leaving it financially stronger.
