Boston Globe bidders submit final offers

Friday marked another deadline in the bidding process for The Boston Globe and its related companies, with the roster of groups entering “best and final” offers changing shape over the course of the past week.

As many as six groups were looking to buy the Globe and other New England businesses owned by the New York Times Co. by week’s end, with one notable bidder stepping out of the mix. Red Sox owner John Henry and his New England Sports Network have decided not to continue in the process, according to people who do business with him and others familiar with his plans.
