News Corp and Move, Inc. announced that News Corp has agreed to acquire Move. REA Group Limited, which is 61.6% owned by News Corp and is the operator of Australian residential property website, realestate.com.au, plans to hold a 20% stake in Move with 80% held by News Corp. Under the acquisition agreement, which has been unanimously approved by the board of Move, News Corp will acquire all the outstanding shares of Move for $21 per share, or approximately $950M, via an all-cash tender offer. This represents a premium of 37% over Move’s closing stock price on September 29, 2014. REA’s share will be acquired for approximately $200M. News Corp intends to commence a tender offer for all of the shares of common stock of Move within 10 business days, followed by a merger to acquire any untendered shares. News Corp. CEO Robert Thomson said, "In addition to boosting Move’s subscription, advertising and software services, this acquisition will give News Corp a significant marketing platform for our media assets, which will benefit from the high-quality geographic data generated by real estate searches.

Move will become an operating business of News Corp and remain headquartered in San Jose, California.

17:48 EDTNWSA, NWSNews Corp opposed Google EC settlement offer
Early last week, in a letter to European Commissioner for Competition Joaquín Almunia, News Corp (NWS, NWSA) CEO Robert Thomson opposed Google’s (GOOG) settlement offer with the European Commission, or EC, saying the internet giant is “willing to exploit its dominant market position to stifle competition.” Thomson said News Corp also opposed the proposed five year term of a settlement, noting that “five years is an eternity in internet time.” Citing Google’s “egregious aggregation” of content, Mr. Thomson said that, along with serious commercial damage, there is a “profound social cost” to Google’s actions. “The internet should be a canvas for freedom of expression and for high quality content of enduring value. Undermining the basic business model of professional content creators will lead to a less informed, more vexatious level of dialogue in our society.” "Your decision to reconsider Google's settlement offer comes at a crucial moment in the history of the free flow of information and of a healthy media in Europe and beyond," Mr. Thomson wrote.
