Compass Partners Wins Big Apple Circus Auction
Posted February 9, 2017
The Big Apple Circus has selected Compass Partners, LLC as winner of its bankruptcy auction. The Sarasota, Florida-based investment firm bid $1.3 million to take over the company's intellectual property and assets.

The Big Apple Circus claims the decision "was based on Compass Partners offering the highest bid and making a compelling case to revive the circus performances consistent with the original Big Apple Circus mission and values: serving family audiences in NYC and on tour, sensitive to accessibility and to differently abled audiences."

The sale is subject to the approval of the bankruptcy court.

Compass says it hopes to have the show back in business by Christmas.
