Liberty Media wants to provide investors with a clearer picture of its interactive businesses, so it's planning to spin off its Liberty Starz group (LSTZA)(LSTZB) and Liberty Capital group (LCAPA)(LCAPB) into a separate public public company. The newly formed company, dubbed Newco, will hold virtually all the assets and liabilities of Starz and Capital, but it will be divided into two tracking-stock groups, Liberty announced Sunday.
