"This magazine whose owner had a financial scandal and had to file bankruptcy is sold millions of copies every month world-wide." (from my teacher's handout)
Is the sentence above correct? I think there's something wrong with it.
Here is my revised version:
"This magazine whose owner had a financial scandal and had to file for bankruptcy sells millions of copies every month worldwide."
Am I right? Is there a hyphen in the word world(-)wide? Thanks!

You are close: the magazine sells, not sell.
I'd put commas after "magazine" and "bankruptcy."
You don't need a hyphen in "worldwide."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
