Insight Committee Taps Advisors


Insight Communications Co. Inc.’s special committee of the board of directors said Thursday that it has retained advisors.

The committee -- appointed to consider the proposal made by Insight cofounders Sidney R. Knafel and Michael S. Willner, together with certain other parties, including an affiliate of The Carlyle Group, to acquire all of the MSO’s outstanding publicly held class-A common stock and take it private -- retained Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Evercore Partners Inc. as its financial advisors and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP as its legal advisor.
