Columbia Artists Management Inc. Will Close its Doors

Columbia Artists Management Inc. has announced that it is shutting down, ABC reports.

The company confirmed the closure in a statement emailed Saturday to CAMI artists. It will officially close its doors on Monday.

"Columbia Artists has engaged with a fiduciary to enter into an assignment for the benefit of creditors, a form of insolvency proceeding where assets are liquidated and claims addressed in an orderly manner," the statement said. "We are working tirelessly to provide each of you concrete guidance on your specific situation in the coming days. In addition, we're working together with the fiduciary to see a safe place to land for your Columbia Artists relationship."
