Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox has accepted Walt Disney Company’s revised offer of more than $US70bn for the bulk of its entertainment assets. Disney had originally proposed a scrip-only bid worth $US52.4bn, but it has agreed to allow Fox shareholders to accept a combination of cash and shares. The cash component will be attractive to major Fox shareholders such as the Murdochs, given the capital gains tax implications of a cash-only bid. Disney’s latest offer has trumped Comcast’s $US65bn cash bid.
