Fox to sell Sky stake to Comcast

111


21st Century Fox has said it will sell its 39% stake in Sky to Comcast for close to £11.6 billion.

It follows Comcast’s victory in the bidding war for the broadcaster that came to a conclusion on Saturday.

It means the Murdochs will no longer hold a stake in the company.

In a statement 21st Century Fox said: “In light of the premium Comcast has agreed to pay for Sky, we and Disney have decided to sell 21CF’s existing 39% holding in Sky to Comcast.

“We congratulate Comcast on their pending acquisition.”

The Comcast offer is now mandatory under UK takeover rules.
