07:12 EDTFOXATime Warner rejected $80B offer from 21st Century Fox, CNBC reports
Time Warner (TWX) has formally rejected an $80B takeover offer from Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox (FOXA), CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin reports, citing sources. The deal valued Time Warner at $85 per share and included 60% non-voting stock and 40% cash, Sorkin added. Fox would raise $24B in financing for the deal, he noted. Fox also planned on spinning off its CNN unit in an attempt to appease regulators, the reporter said. Rupert Murdoch remains "determined" to buy Time Warner, Sorkin noted, believing a combination would generate at least $1B in synergies. Time Warner has hired Citigroup and others following receipt of 21st Century Fox's offer, Sorkin added. Shares of Time Warner rallied 13% to $79.97 in pre-open trading following Sorkin's report. The stock closed yesterday down 67c to $71.01.
