Comcast Offered More Money For Fox Than Disney

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

20th Century Fox may have been sold to Disney, but Comcast is actually the company who gave the higher bid. When reports surfaced late last year that Fox was up for grabs, plenty of contenders surfaced. None, however, were considered to be as serious as Disney and Comcast. The Mouse House continued to be the front-runner throughout the bidding process, which became clear when Comcast inevitably dropped out of the race, leading to Disney and Fox officially agreeing to a deal in December.

The New York Times reports that an SEC filing for 20th Century Fox's sale contained official figures from both Comcast and Disney's bids. These documents confirm that Comcast's bid was 16% higher than Disney's. With the official purchase price for Disney sitting high at $52.4 billion, that means Comcast's bid was north of $60 billion. Disney's all-stock offer came in at $29.54 per share, whereas Comcast's bid came in at $34.41 per share. Clearly, sometimes the highest bidder doesn't always come out on top.
