    Clues we know about the company they're acquiring (based on articles):
    -has multiple famous idol groups
    -has a "top boy group"
    -the label in question received multiple "love calls" from other companies

    Companies that have/had top boy groups and aren't owned by larger labels/affiliated with the B3 (like FNC):

    -WM (B1A4, Oh My Girl, ONF)
    -Top Media (Teen Top, 100%, UP10TION)
    -Pledis* (SVT & NU'EST, technically still AS and affiliated w IZ*ONE, fromis_9)
    -CUBE* (BTOB, CLC, IDLE, Pentagon)

    Top Media only has 1 super popular group, and WM is similar in this regard. If we're talking current "top boy groups", then only Pledis and CUBE (because BTOB's digitals) seem to work with this logic.

    Pledis recently changed their distributor to CJE&M's Stone Music, and there were also rumors of Pledis being acquired in the past by that company, so that might distance themselves from BH. But at the same time no news has come out with saying CJE&M has indeed acquired Pledis, so that might point to the clue that said label received calls to be acquired by other companies.

    So this is where things get interesting. Earlier this year, D'Live (major shareholder of CUBE) wanted to sell their stakes in CUBE and iHQ. https://pulsenews.co.kr/view.php?year=2019&no=47592

    If this is true, the company that might be buying out CUBE could be BH. It helps that BH and CUBE have had reps working together in the past during their JYP days, and Yeonjun of TXT also was a CUBE trainee.

    TL;DR: Pledis and Cube seem the most likely companies at the moment for BH to acquire.

    What are your thoughts? Any sleuthing you've done?

    Starship are owned already by Kakao M and there's been no reports on them selling Starship.
