Twenty-First Century Fox Inc’s (FOXA.O) shares hit a record high on Wednesday as approval for AT&T Inc’s (T.N) $85 billion buyout of Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) spurred speculation that Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O) would make an offer for most of Fox’s assets. (Reuters)
A firm offer from Comcast, widely expected later in the day, could upend Fox’s $52 billion all-stock deal to be bought by Walt Disney Co (DIS.N).
U.S. District Judge Richard Leon on Tuesday approved AT&T’s buyout of Time Warner, rebuffing an attempt by U.S. President Donald Trump to block the takeover and potentially clearing the path for more such deals in a rapidly changing media industry.
Fox shares rose 7 percent in afternoon trade. Shares of other telecom and media companies such as Sprint Corp (S.N), CBS Corp (CBS.N) and Discovery Inc (DISCA.O) were all up between 1 percent to 3 percent. Time Warner rose almost 3 percent, while Disney was up 2 percent.
While the judge’s approval of AT&T’s deal for Time Warner may embolden Comcast, it does not guarantee clear passage for its acquisition of Fox’s entertainment business, according to antitrust lawyers.
Henry Su, an antitrust expert with Constantine Cannon LLP, said that Comcast already owns significant amounts of content because it bought NBC Universal.
Both companies operate television and film studios, have a stake in streaming service Hulu and own regional sports networks.
In terms of profitability, The Company has a profit margin of 19.20%, gross margin of 51.40% and an operating of 12.70%.
