Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger has ruled out a deal with Comcast to carve up the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox. Sources have indicated that Fox and Disney are finalising the terms of the latter’s $US71.3bn ($A96.8bn) cash and scrip deal, which has trumped Comcast’s $US65bn cash bid. Fox shareholders are expected to emerge with about 19 per cent of the enlarged Disney via the revised deal, compared with around 25 per cent under its previous scrip-only offer.
