Great Business, Great Partners, Great People.
L to R Andrew Hutton, Bill Warren, Mark Hutton
Congratulations to Bill Warren and Mark and Andy Hutton on the sale of all of the Warren Theatres! Bill conceived, designed, built and operated the theatres in a manner that has set a high nationwide standard for the movie theatre industry. The purchaser is Regal Entertainment Group which operates one of the most geographically diverse theatre circuits throughout the United States and beyond. Every indication is that Regal will carry on the outstanding tradition established by Bill Warren.
Mark and Andy Hutton and Bill Warren have been partners since 1989. The Huttons are practicing lawyers, and while they have not been involved in the day-to-day operation of the business, they have enjoyed a terrific relationship with Bill and his employees.
TWG has been fortunate to represent the Warren organization and, specifically, on its sale to Regal. Ross Hellwig of TWG was the lead negotiator and Ron Harnden participated in the negotiations, with both sharing the responsibilities of drafting sale and closing documents. Negotiations and document production were intensive over a relatively short period of time and many others at TWG, including Andrew Kovar, Tad Patton, Eric Metz, Tom Garretson and Jeff Dahlgren provided valuable input and experience. TWG staff worked long nights and weekends to bring the matter to a successful close. Bill, Mark and Andy are very pleased, which is satisfying to all.
We wish the very best to Bill, Mark and Andy.
