Warner said it has not contacted Motown.

Geoffrey W. Holmes, a vice president for Warner Communications, said neither Warner “nor any other authorized representatives” has contacted Motown Record Corp. or its president, Jay Lasker, “regarding the possible sale of WCI’s recorded-music division.” Lasker said earlier this week that he was approached about such a sale by a party that he declined to identify. When asked about Lasker’s statement Wednesday, Warner’s Holmes declined to comment. Lasker was unavailable for further comment.
