It was confirmed this morning that Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (Teachers’) has decided to maintain its ownership stake in Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE). From the onset, we knew a change in ownership was not a foregone conclusion. Teachers’ said then they were exploring the possibility of a sale in response to unsolicited expressions of interest they had received.
Teachers’, along with Kilmer Sports, are great owners. They have always provided our teams with the resources needed to compete on the ice, on the court and on the pitch. MLSE has been operating ‘business as usual’ throughout this process and will continue to do so.
