California delayed by one day its sale of $10 billion in short-term notes to update disclosures to buyers of the debt. Treasurer Bill Lockyer said he was forced to amend the offering's disclosure documents because of a lawsuit filed Tuesday challenging the state's plans to sell and lease back 11 office properties. Failure to complete the real estate transaction would widen the state's projected budget gap, a possibility that investors might want to know about. The change in disclosure means that individual investors who placed orders Monday and Tuesday for $5.89 billion of the notes must reconfirm they want them.

NEW YORK -- The Madison Square Garden Co. may be a logical bidder for Staples Center, but would not likely win an auction for the sports and entertainment venue, an analyst said. Anschutz Entertainment Group -- which owns Staples Center along with the Kings hockey team and Galaxy soccer team, among other assets -- has been put up for sale by billionaire Philip Anschutz. MSG would be a logical bidder for the teams and the venue, said Laura Martin, an analyst at Needham & Co. Inc. With a market capitalization of $3.1 billion, MSG would be too small to purchase all of AEG, she added.
