Kenner Parker Toys has opened negotiations with unspecified parties interested in acquiring the company at a price exceeding New World Entertainment's hostile bid of $47 a share. The Beverly, Mass.-based company reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission that its board decided to defer plans for a recapitalization pending the outcome of the negotiations.
