Despite some opposition from board members, Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly has agreed to let company founder Richard Schulze and his team of potential investors to interview eight to 10 key executives, the Star Tribune reports.
Schulze, Best Buy's largest shareholder, has until mid-November to make a buyout offer to take the struggling Richfield-based electronics retailer private. He is under a 60-day deadline to present a proposal to the company’s Board of Directors.
The deal could end up being close to an $11 billion proposal.
Meanwhile, Best Buy is looking for a new chief financial officer after James Muehlbauer announced he was leaving the company.
Joly, Best Buy’s new president and CEO, began his new role in September.
