BURBANK, Calif., June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) today announced that it has signed an amended acquisition agreement with Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (“21st Century Fox” – NASDAQ: FOXA, FOX) for $38 per share in cash and shares. Disney will acquire 21st Century Fox immediately after the previously announced spin-off of the companies that make up New Fox.
The 21st Century Fox business that will be acquired by Disney will remain the same as under the original agreement. Since the announcement of the initial agreement, the intrinsic value of these assets has increased, in particular due to tax reform and operational improvements. Since Disney owns the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), Comcast owns the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) and 21st Century Fox owns the Fox Broadcasting Company, a complete takeover of Fox by Disney or Comcast would have been illegal under Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules that prohibit a merger between two of the four major broadcast networks.
