Rupert Murdoch's daughter Elisabeth Murdoch collected $214 million from the sale of her British TV production company, Shine Group, to her father's media company this year.
In April, News Corp. paid $675 million to buy her 10-year-old company, which produces such TV programs as "The Biggest Loser" and "MasterChef." Of that amount, about $480 million was earmarked for Shine's equity partners, News Corp. said in its annual report filed Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Until now, it was unclear exactly how much Elisabeth Murdoch made on the sale.
The 42-year-old Murdoch was the majority shareholder, owning 53% of Shine, a company that she steadily built by acquiring small TV production companies in various countries. In 2008 she bought U.S.-based Reveille, which produces "The Office" for NBC.
Sony Pictures Entertainment owned 20% of Shine.
News Corp. said $135 million of the purchase price went to retire Shine's debt and pay other liabilities. An additional $60 million, part of the $480 million attributed to equity, has been set aside in escrow to "satisfy any indemnification obligations," the company said.
