  • Obi-Wan Ken-IPO? - CNN 05/18/05

    Article from CNN - May 18, 2005
    Obi-Wan Ken-IPO?

    Star Wars fans would love to own a piece of Lucasfilm. But will Lucas ever take his Empire public?
    So what could a public Lucasfilm be worth?

    We did some quick back-of-the-envelope math to come up with an admittedly rough guess for a valuation. Pixar (Research) currently trades at about 20 times estimates for this year's sales while DreamWorks (Research) has a price-to-sales ratio of about 6.

    If you split the difference, for a price/sales ratio of 13, and conservatively estimate another $1.05 billion in sales this year, you'd come up with a market value of around $13 billion. Not too shabby.
