Imax (IMAX.NYSE) agreed to sell a 20% stake in its Chinese business to two local investors, Bloomberg reported, citing a Wednesday statement by Imax. CMC Capital Partners, an investment fund focused on media and entertainment, and FountainVest Partners, a Chinese private-equity firm, will buy shares of Imax China Holding for US$80 million in two installments.
