AT&T Sees Time Warner Acquisition a Priority in 2018

AT&T (T) plans to get its Mexico unit out of the red this year, but its priority is also closing its pending acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The court’s decision on whether AT&T can close the acquisition is expected by June 12. The United States Department of Justice (or DOJ) filed a lawsuit to block AT&T from acquiring Time Warner, saying a merger of the two companies would hurt consumers through higher pay-TV prices or limited television choices.
