11:45 EDTFOXA, FOX, SNI, DISCA, AMCX, VIA, VIAB, CBS, TWXMedia stocks rally after Time Warner rejects Fox bid
Media stocks are rallying after Time Warner (TWX) confirmed that it rejected an offer made by 21st Century Fox (FOXA, FOX) to combine the media giants. WHAT'S NEW: Both Time Warner and 21st Century Fox confirmed an earlier CNBC report that Time Warner rejected an $80B takeover offer from 21st Century Fox. Time Warner said it turned down Fox's offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the company for a combination of 1.531 of Twenty-First Century Fox Class A non-voting common shares and $32.42 in cash per share. Time Warner added that its board is confident that continuing to execute its strategic plan will "create significantly more value for the company and its stockholders and is superior to any proposal that Twenty-First Century Fox is in a position to offer." 21st Century Fox also confirmed that it made a formal proposal to Time Warner, which was rejected, and added that the companies are not currently in any discussions. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Time Warner advanced 16.5% to $82.70, while Twenty-First Century Fox class A shares are down 5% to $33.45.
