The head of publisher Bertelsmann said its TV arm RTL should be allowed to merge with German rival ProSiebenSat.1, to give them a fighting chance against U.S. streaming giants. Thomas Rabe's comments - in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung published on Sunday - come as European broadcasters explore ways to join forces against the onslaught from established players Netflix and Amazon Prime that are now being joined by Disney and Apple. ProSieben has become the focus of takeover speculation after Italy's Mediaset amassed a 15.1% stake in the Munich-based broadcaster towards the end of last year.
The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, one of the biggest pensions in the world, more than doubled its BlackBerry stockholdings in the fourth quarter.

Bulls and bears tussled over Roku stock on Friday after the streaming video platform reported strong revenue growth and user numbers but continued losses. Roku jumped early then fell hard.
Investors bought on the better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings print from Roku Inc (NASDAQ: ROKU), but the streaming company's showing couldn't hold their interest for a second day, as the stock gave back the gains Friday. Olivetree Financial tech sector strategist Dan Forman praised Roku's Thursday print for a 71% year-over-year gain in platform segment revenue, which was a record at nearly $260 million, and strong player segment revenue growth that also topped expectations.
(Bloomberg) -- Roku Inc. shares fell on Friday, erasing an initial rally that came in the wake of its better-than-expected fourth-quarter results.Analysts were broadly positive on the quarter, the latest to show strong momentum at the video-streaming platform as consumers cut the cord on traditional cable services and move toward services like Netflix or Disney+However, the adjusted loss per share beat expectations by a smaller degree than is typical for the company. In addition, some firms expressed concern over the stock’s valuation following a recent surge, and said the Ebitda guidance looked light.Shares fell 7.8% after earlier spiking as much as 8.7%. The stock remains down more than 20% from a record close, though it has risen more than 30% off a September low, and it remains up more than 300% from the start of 2019.Here’s what analysts are saying about the results:Macquarie Research, Tim NollenThe outlook “is a bit below our admittedly bullish estimates,” given more investment costs and “a more measured international roll-out” than expected.Expects a full-year loss of $1.33 a share, compared with a prior view of a loss of 38 cents a share.Outperform, $170 price target.Loop Capital Markets, Alan Gould“While the company has executed well, it still faces substantial potential competition.” It is “difficult to justify the $18 billion enterprise value.”Sell, $80 price target.SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Matthew ThorntonActive account additions “were well ahead of consensus,” which is likely due in part to Disney+. However, the Ebitda outlook “is well below consensus,” and competing platforms could pressure Roku’s margins.“Roku continues to execute and is well-placed in the secular shift to internet TV.”Hold, $160 price target.Rosenblatt Securities, Mark ZgutowiczThis was a “generally stellar quarter,” and the outlook underscores Roku’s “widening scale and market leverage.”Sees signs of “meaningful” international growth ahead.Buy, price target raised to $190 from $159.RBC Capital Markets, Mark MahaneyThe company’s platform business “looks like a sustainable 50% grower.” Fundamentals were “solid” in the quarter, with only a “very modest” deceleration in growth from “robust levels.”Outperform, price target $170 from $160.Stephens, Kyle EvansThe outlook was “in line or above consensus where it mattered most -- revenue and gross margin in its Platform segment.”A “heavy” launch cycle for streaming video on demand services in 2020 and 2021 “is likely to drive [average revenue per user] higher for the foreseeable future.”“Investors wanting exposure to connected T.V. will continue to bid Roku upward.”Overweight, $155 price target.Susquehanna Financial Group, Shyam PatilThe report and outlook “continue to highlight Roku’s strong momentum.” Active accounts rose more than expected, and “engagement growth was also strong.”Positive, price target raised to $170 from $150.Guggenheim, Michael Morris“Roku holds an attractive position within an expanding global steaming market and ultimately has the potential for a higher valuation.”Buy, $150 price target.What Bloomberg Intelligence Says:Roku is “still well-positioned to benefit from the secular shift away from traditional pay-TV, as the company reinforced its position as the No. 1 TV streaming platform in the U.S.”\- Analyst Amine Bensaid\- Click here for the research(Updates with afternoon trading, adds Macquarie comments)To contact the reporter on this story: Ryan Vlastelica in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at firstname.lastname@example.org, Scott Schnipper, Steven FrommFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Atlanta Business Chronicle recently caught up with the retired coach to talk about growing up in the South, overcoming obstacles and what it takes to be a leader.
Roku's streaming platform added 4.6 million new customers over the December quarter, thanks in part to new offerings from media giants Disney and Apple.
(Bloomberg) -- Roku Inc. reported a surge in new active accounts in its fourth-quarter results, with the video-streaming platform benefiting from the debut of new services like Disney+. The account additions beat expectations and the shares gained as much as 13% in extended trading.Active accounts rose by 4.6 million to 36.9 million in the quarter, compared with the average estimate of 35.9 million, according to Bloomberg Consensus estimates. Roku also reported a loss of 13 cents a share on revenue of $411.2 million. Wall Street had been looking for a loss of 14 cents a share and revenue of $391.7 million.“Disney has had a lot of positive press out in the market and we’ve been a very good source of viewership for Disney+ and they’ve been a good partner,” Chief Financial Officer Steve Louden said in an interview.For the first quarter, Roku forecast sales of $300 million to $310 million and a loss of $18 million to $23 million before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Wall Street was looking for sales of $296.8 million and Ebitda of $4.2 million.Thursday’s after-hours move comes after a pronounced gain that has seen shares jump almost 180% over the past year. The company is one of the most visible plays on the so-called over-the-top video sector, which has grown increasingly popular as consumers cut the cord on traditional cable packages and gravitate instead toward on-demand streaming. Walt Disney’s service, launched in November, was seen as accelerating this trend.Roku’s position within this market has made it a favorite among analysts. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, 13 firms recommend buying the stock, while two have hold-equivalent ratings and three advocate selling.Roku’s streaming platform has had a “great” reception in Brazil after debuting there last month, Louden said. The Los Gatos, California-based company has a “huge opportunity” in international markets, where the move to streaming is still in “early days,” he said.(Adds CFO comment in third and last paragraphs.)To contact the reporters on this story: Ryan Vlastelica in New York at email@example.com;Jeran Wittenstein in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at email@example.com, Greg ChangFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Disney and UEFA have teamed up in an unlikely partnership to inspire the next generation of female soccer players. Their Playmakers project hopes to encourage young girls in Europe, aged five to eight years old, to join the sport using characters from popular Disney movies like the Incredibles 2. UEFA's Head of Women's Football and former soccer star, Nadine Kessler explains: (SOUNDBITE) (English) UEFA HEAD OF WOMEN'S FOOTBALL, NADINE KESSLER, SAYING: "UEFA Playmakers Inspired by Disney is more than just another football program. Playmakers is there to inspire the next generation of football-loving girls. It's the first-ever pan-European wide, grassroots program for 5 to 8-year-old girls. And we hope Europe's girls will soon be able to step into the magical world of football as they take their first step on their football journey."
