Ten has said both shareholders have bought more stock in the company, with Rinehart now holding a 10.6% stake through her subsidiary Hanrine Investments.
Murdoch, who is the company’s chairman, lifted his stake from 186 million shares to 256 million. The purchase was made through two separate subsidiaries – Illyria Nominees Television, and Cavalane Holdings.
“Mr Murdoch has a relevant interest in the shares in Ten Network Holdings Limited held by Cavalane as he controls Illyria,” the statement read.
