BIG APPLE CIRCUS TO SELL ASSETS

Stampler Auctions to Oversee Sale

New York, NY – The Big Apple Circus, a New York and national cultural treasure for four decades, is soliciting bids for the sale of all or substantially all of its assets pursuant to bidding procedures approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.  The assets include all of the Circus’ performance equipment and intellectual property, among other items.  All interested buyers must submit bids by February 3, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).  An auction to consider bulk bids to acquire substantially all of the Circus’ assets will be held on February 7, 2017 and managed by Stampler Auctions.
The February 7 auction will be held at the New York offices of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, who are serving pro bono as the Big Apple Circus’ legal counsel in the bankruptcy case.  Details regarding the sale process, including bidding procedures and asset lists, can be found online at www.stamplerauctions.com.  Any assets not purchased as a bulk lot through the February 7 auction will be sold through a subsequent public auction, if necessary.
“This court-ordered auction represents a great opportunity for a buyer to keep the mission and vision of the Big Apple Circus intact,” said Harry Stampler, President and Chief Auctioneer of Stampler Auctions.  “This is a well-known and valuable brand.”
Will Maitland Weiss, Executive Director of the Big Apple Circus, said, “We are grateful to our board members, staff, artists, donors, audience members, and community partners who have stood by us and continued to offer their support to save the Circus. We hope to see a revived Big Apple Circus back under the Big Top to delight audiences of all ages, abilities, and income levels in the years to come.”
