MSLO Looks for Potential Buyer

NEW YORK - Martha Stewart Living Omni-media has retained Blackstone Advisory Partners to examine possible investors or buyers for the company.
     "As the founder and largest stockholder, I fully support his initiative," said Stewart.
     The company has experienced declining revenues for three years - in part a reflection of the difficult advertising environment for print publications generally as well as the impact of terminating its multi-category licensing partnership with Kmart, which at peak contributed 50% of the merchandise division's revenues.
     The company also announced that Stewart will rejoin MSLO's board of directors during the third quarter. She was forced off the board for a five-year period as part of the settlement in her insider trading case.
