Comcast makes its offer for Sky official
April 25, 2018
Comcast has made a formal offer for Sky, valuing the UK-based satellite operator at £22 billion ($30.7 billion). Today's official offer of £12.50 represents a premium of more than 16% over 21st Century Fox’s offer for the 61% of Sky it does not own. Sky's independent board of directors has this morning withdrawn its recommendation of the Fox bid, making a battle for ownership of Sky between Comcast, Fox and possibly Walt Disney Co, seemingly inevitable.
