(AP) - PRESSING ON: Richard Schulze, co-founder of Best Buy and its former chairman, said Thursday that he remains committed to his offer for the consumer electronics company.
THE OFFER: He made a bid of $24 to $26 per share 10 days ago, which would take the retailer private if it goes through.
LINING UP SUPPORT: While some analysts have wondered if Schulze may have trouble lining up investment firms to help pay for the transaction, Schulze said in a letter to Best Buy Co.'s board that he's heard from a number of private equity firms prepared to make "significant commitments."
