CFRA Research senior analyst Tuna Amobi and attorney Leeza Garber on the impact of the AT&T-Time Warner deal on the media industry.

CNBC’s three top bullets reports about the Comcast offer for Fox as follows.

  • Comcast, the parent of CNBC, offered Fox shareholders $35 a share in cash and 100 percent of the shares of the company left behind after the deal.
  • The deal is a 19 percent premium to the value of Disney’s offer as of noon on Wednesday.
  • The announcement comes one day after a federal judge cleared the way for AT&T’s megadeal for Time Warner, a decision that is expected to unleash a wave of big mergers.

 

21st Century Fox is the legal successor to News Corporation dealing primarily in the film and television industries. … The company’s assets include the FoxEntertainment Group—owners of the 20th Century Fox film studio (the company’s partial namesake), Fox television network and Fox News channel, among other assets,” said Wikipedia.
