By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 25 April 2008 09:50 GMT

Warner Bros has confirmed a plan to buy £15 million in SCi stock, and to take control of the publisher’s distribution in the US, Canada and Mexico.

In addition, SCi said the move was just the part of a plan to raise £60 million through an issue of 171,605,424 new shares at 35 pence per share.

“Today we have significantly strengthened our relationship with Warner Bros. – one of the world’s largest media groups – to create an exciting strategic partnership, giving us increased scale in the North American market, to the benefit of all our major franchises,” said SCi CEO Phil Rogers.
