    Comcast outbids Fox with $40 billion winning offer for Sky

    Comcast beat Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox in the battle for Sky on Saturday after offering 30.6 billion pounds ($40 billion) in a dramatic auction to decide the fate of the pay-television group. The U.S. cable giant bid 17.28 pounds a share for control of London-listed Sky, bettering a 15.67 pounds-a-share offer by Fox, Britain's Takeover Panel said. Buying Sky will make Philadelphia-based Comcast, which owns the NBC network and Universal Pictures, the world's largest pay-TV operator with around 52 million customers.

    Boutique firm Robey Warshaw delivered Comcast's knockout blow for Sky

    A banker from one of Britain's leading boutique advisory firms pressed the button on Comcast's (CMCSA.O) knockout $40 billion bid for broadcaster Sky (SKYB.L). The U.S. cable giant emerged victorious on Saturday evening from its protracted battle with Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA.O) for London-listed Sky with a 17.28 pounds-a-share offer. If Comcast had only offered marginally more than Fox, Murdoch's company could have fought on for control of Sky because its stake would have given it an upper hand.
