Hopes to get $36 million

Stories are circulating that SCO Group has found a buyer and hopes to sell its UNIX assets to York Capital Management for up to $36 million, pending approval by the bankruptcy trustee. According to bankruptcy and regulatory filings, York would reportedly provide SCO with the following:  $10 million in cash; up to $10 million in credit to fund its legal fight against Novell and IBM and to get 20 percent of revenue from that action; $10 million for a 20 percent stake in the company; and $6 million to license the Hipcheck products from SCO's Me mobile device software effort and to share revenue from that business endeavor.
