  • Disney Merger

    The Disney/21 Century Fox merger might not take place. Our offer was stock options only, and Comcast has, what appears to be, a better offer.

      An all-cash offer would be subject to a capital gains tax, where as an all-stock offer wouldn't be (potentially making it more appealing). Also, from what I hear, U.K. regulators are significantly more worried about vertical integration being a factor in anti-competitiveness, vs. the limited horizontal consolidation view many antitrust officials look at in the U.S. Fox might still prefer a Disney offer, though they may want a slight increase in the value.

        Also, if Fox declines Disney's offer, they will have to pay a severance fine to Disney(a few million to be exact). Disney also has the chance to counter Comcast's offer, and raise the bid.

        I personally think Disney should drop Sky News from the deal, as it feels like an unnecessary add-on, that could also interfere with getting an ok from the FTC(which why Disney can NOT buy Fox News or Fox affiliates, as Anti-Monopoly laws make it illegal to do so)

          Disney just upped their offer for most Fox assets to $71.3 billion, up from $52.8b, more than the Comcast bid of $65b.
