    Viacom: Why Not Just Go Private?

    If contemplating the possibility of a Viacom (VIAB) merger with CBS (CBS) has become too much of a soap opera for you, how about the idea that Viacom just keeps it simple and goes private? “We’re not going to comment on any specific M&A related to Viacom. Any M&A, including of the form that you’re talking about is really a board question.” CBS — which shares a long and winding history with Viacom — didn’t come up on the call.

    Viacom Could Enter Long-Term Uptrend

    An optimistic outlook underpinned price action in the troubled media giant, which is digging out after years of drama and litigation with former executive chairman and founder Sumner Redstone. Deep-pocketed bottom fishers may wish to open positions at this juncture, but the majority of market players should keep their powder dry and wait for price action to set off long-term buying signals. The current Viacom opened at $41.12 after issuing new shares in January 2006, following the split with CBS Corporation ( CBS).

    [$$] Sumner Redstone Trust Restricts Sale Options for CBS, Viacom

    Sumner Redstone doesn’t want his heirs to have an easy time selling off his family’s controlling stakes in media companies Viacom Inc. and CBS Corp. And he put it in writing in his estate-planning documents. The trust that will control Viacom and CBS when the 95-year-old media mogul dies or is deemed incapacitated places severe restrictions on the trustees’ ability to sell the companies, according to a copy of the confidential trust reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The trust, details of which haven’t been disclosed previously, prohibits the trustees from entering into any merger that would leave shareholders in National Amusements, Mr. Redstone’s holding company, with less than 30% of the voting control of the resulting business.

    CBS Judge Questions Redstone's Mental State Ahead of Court Fight

    The judge who will decide whether CBS Corp. directors can strip Sumner Redstone of his controlling interest in the media company has expressed concerns about the ailing billionaire’s mental capacity and his ability to participate in efforts to block the move. CBS directors, led by Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves, say the 95-year-old Redstone’s health issues have worsened to the point that he is incapable of communicating his views about a plan designed to slash the Redstone family’s voting control from 79 percent to 17 percent. While Delaware Chancery Court Judge Andre Bouchard refused to order Redstone to submit to pretrial questioning by CBS lawyers about his understanding of the dilution plan and efforts to oppose it, the judge said he had serious questions about the billionaire’s mental abilities.
