Billionaire investor Haim Saban is in talks to buy Muppet maker Jim Henson Co. at a steep discount to what Germany's EM.TV & Merchandising paid for it, people close to the situation said Tuesday. The two sides are still haggling over the price, but it is broadly in the vicinity of about $100 million, the sources said. EM.TV paid $680 million for Hollywood-based Henson in February 2000.

Seeking to become el grande in the growing U.S. Latin music market, Universal Music Group on Thursday said it had agreed to buy Univision Communications Inc.'s record division. The purchase price was nearly $140 million, according to two people close to the negotiations who asked not to be identified because the financial terms were confidential. The acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval, would more than triple Universal's share of the Latin music market to about 49%.
