Dragon*Con Announces Separation from Kramer

In a press release today, Greg Euston, Director of Public Relations for Dragon*Con, announced that they have officially merged the old Dragon Con / Ace, Inc. into a new company, Dragon Con, Inc. in a cash-out merger. Ownership of the  new company includes five of the six founding owners of Dragon Con / Ace; Edward Kramer, one of the founding members, was offered cash for his shares of the old company, and is not associated with the new company in any way.

Although Kramer has had no role in managing or organizing the convention since 2000, his association with and financial interest in the old company was problematic for Dragon*Con since he was accused of child molestation and arrested in 2000.
