The Terminator rights were sold for $29.5 million, following a legal battle in which Halcyon Holding was forced to file for bankruptcy, the case was started by the hedge fund which won the bidding wars, Pacificor.

Shemano said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “Not only did Halcyon receive the green light to sell the ‘Terminator’ rights to Pacificor but the production company was finally able to resolve a dispute it had with the hedge fund during the sale process.”  The Wall Street Journal reports.
