According to an article by the Wall Street Journal, “The latest discussions come just five months after a previous courtship ended largely over who would control the combined business.” The article also stated, “It is unclear what terms Sprint and T-Mobile are considering, and it is possible, as before, that they could fail to reach an agreement.

    [$$] Fox Rejected Higher Comcast Bid Due to Antitrust Concerns

    21st Century Fox Inc. rejected an acquisition offer for its entertainment assets from cable giant Comcast Corp. largely over antitrust concerns, a regulatory filing said, even though the bid was 16% higher on a per-share basis than what Walt Disney Co. ultimately agreed to pay. After extended discussions, Fox’s board decided that Comcast’s offer was too risky to accept, according to the filing. Fox was concerned such a deal might not pass muster in Washington, and even if it did, it would require divestiture of valuable assets that would reduce the value of the deal to Fox.
