COMPANY SALE

Witherspoon recently sold Hello Sunshine after five years for a reported $900 million. The 45-year-old launched the media company back in 2016.

Along with the business, she also launched podcasts and a well-loved book club, and the company also helped produce big TV shows such as "Big Little Lies and "The Morning Show."

The company was bought by a new venture between private equity giant Blackstone Group, including former Disney execs Kevin Mayer and Tom Staggs.

The deal came as video streaming competition arose between Netflix Inc, Walt Disney Co's Disney +, and AT&T Inc's HBO's Max, which forced the companies to spend billions on content.

The global head of private equity at Blackstone, Joe Baratta, released a statement saying the rapidly growing demand for high-quality content is one of the firm's highest-conviction investment themes.

As for Hello Sunshine, its board will include Witherspoon and its Chief Executive Sarah Harden, who will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations. The pair will also remain equity holders of the production house.
